iget: stop HPPFS from using iget() and read_inode()
Stop the HPPFS filesystem from using iget() and read_inode(). Provide an hppfs_iget(), and call that instead of iget(). hppfs_iget() then uses iget_locked() directly and returns a proper error code instead of an inode in the event of an error. hppfs_fill_sb_common() returns any error incurred when getting the root inode instead of EINVAL. Note that the contents of hppfs_kern.c need to be examined: (*) The HPPFS inode retains a pointer to the proc dentry it is shadowing, but whilst it does appear to retain a reference to it, it doesn't appear to destroy the reference if the inode goes away. (*) hppfs_iget() should perhaps subsume init_inode() and hppfs_read_inode(). (*) It would appear that all hppfs inodes are the same inode because iget() was being called with inode number 0, which forms the lookup key.
