[PATCH] new helper: d_obtain_alias
The calling conventions of d_alloc_anon are rather unfortunate for all users, and it's name is not very descriptive either. Add d_obtain_alias as a new exported helper that drops the inode reference in the failure case, too and allows to pass-through NULL pointers and inodes to allow for tail-calls in the export operations. Incidentally this helper already existed as a private function in libfs.c as exportfs_d_alloc so kill that one and switch the callers to d_obtain_alias.
