fsnotify: ignored_mask - excluding notification
The ignored_mask is a new mask which is part of fsnotify marks. A group's should_send_event() function can use the ignored mask to determine that certain events are not of interest. In particular if a group registers a mask including FS_OPEN on a vfsmount they could add FS_OPEN to the ignored_mask for individual inodes and not send open events for those inodes.
