Make ->d_sb assign-once and always non-NULL
New helper (non-exported, fs/internal.h-only): __d_alloc(sb, name). Allocates dentry, sets its ->d_sb to given superblock and sets ->d_op accordingly. Old d_alloc(NULL, name) callers are converted to that (all of them know what superblock they want). d_alloc() itself is left only for parent != NULl case; uses __d_alloc(), inserts result into the list of parent's children. Note that now ->d_sb is assign-once and never NULL *and* ->d_parent is never NULL either. Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
