Merge branch 'work.mqueue' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/vfs
Pull mqueue/bpf vfs cleanups from Al Viro: "mqueue and bpf go through rather painful and similar contortions to create objects in their dentry trees. Provide a primitive for doing that without abusing ->mknod(), switch bpf and mqueue to it. Another mqueue-related thing that has ended up in that branch is on-demand creation of internal mount (based upon the work of Giuseppe Scrivano)" * 'work.mqueue' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/vfs: mqueue: switch to on-demand creation of internal mount tidy do_mq_open() up a bit mqueue: clean prepare_open() up do_mq_open(): move all work prior to dentry_open() into a helper mqueue: fold mq_attr_ok() into mqueue_get_inode() move dentry_open() calls up into do_mq_open() mqueue: switch to vfs_mkobj(), quit abusing ->d_fsdata bpf_obj_do_pin(): switch to vfs_mkobj(), quit abusing ->mknod() new primitive: vfs_mkobj()
