D'oh... And yes, that would've been a bisect hazard - switch to
path_lookupat() later in the series gets rid of that. Incremental
(to be foldede, of course):

diff --git a/fs/namei.c b/fs/namei.c

- if (!err)
+ if (!err && (nd->flags & LOOKUP_RCU))
err = unlazy_walk(nd);
if (!err)
err = handle_lookup_down(nd);
