Possible solution:
Add interface file_oprations->permission().

At least in rw_verify_area() and clone_verify_area() it is clear
how this would be used. Instead if calling security_file_permission()
call it via a helper file_permission() like with inode_permission.

My understanding in the VFS permission checks model is too
limited to say if this makes sense.

Thanks,
Amir.
