Subject[PATCH 3/9] VFS/namei: new flag to support RCU symlinks: LOOKUP_LINK_RCU.
When we support ->follow_link in RCU-walk we will not want to
take a reference to the 'struct path *link' passed to follow_link,
and correspondingly will not want to drop that reference.

As link_path_walk will complete_walk() in the case of an error,
and as complete_walk() will clear LOOKUP_RCU, we cannot test
LOOKUP_RCU to determine if the path should be 'put'.

So introduce a new flag: LOOKUP_LINK_RCU. This is set on
entry to follow_link() if appropriate and put_link() will
only call path_put() if it is clear.

Also, unlazy_walk() will fail if LOOKUP_LINK_RCU is set.
This is because there is no way for unlazy_walk to get references
on all the "struct path *link"s that are protected by that flag.
