fs: add do_linkat() helper and ksys_link() wrapper; remove in-kernel calls to syscall
Using the fs-internal do_linkat() helper allows us to get rid of fs-internal calls to the sys_linkat() syscall. Introducing the ksys_link() wrapper allows us to avoid the in-kernel calls to sys_link() syscall. The ksys_ prefix denotes that this function is meant as a drop-in replacement for the syscall. In particular, it uses the same calling convention as sys_link(). In the near future, the only fs-external user of ksys_link() should be converted to use vfs_link() instead. This patch is part of a series which removes in-kernel calls to syscalls. On this basis, the syscall entry path can be streamlined.
