open-style analog of vfs_path_lookup()
new function: file_open_root(dentry, mnt, name, flags) opens the file vfs_path_lookup would arrive to. Note that name can be empty; in that case the usual requirement that dentry should be a directory is lifted. open-coded equivalents switched to it, may_open() got down exactly one caller and became static.
