This could be done, but the reason for stashing it away in
last_magiclink is because of the future magic-link re-opening patches
which can't be implemented like that without putting the open_flags
inside nameidata (which was decided to be too ugly a while ago).

My point being that I could implement it this way for this series, but
I'd have to implement something like last_magiclink when I end up
re-posting the magic-link stuff in a few weeks.

Looking at all the nd_jump_link() users, the other option is to just
disallow magic-link crossings entirely for LOOKUP_NO_XDEV. The only
thing allowing them permits is to resolve file descriptors that are
pointing to the same procfs mount -- and it's unclear to me how useful
that really is (apparmorfs and nsfs will always give -EXDEV because
aafs_mnt and nsfs_mnt are internal kernel vfsmounts).
