Subject: [PATCH v5 10/23] fsnotify: Allow events reported with an empty inode

Some file system events (i.e. FS_ERROR) might not be associated with an
inode.  For these, it makes sense to associate them directly with the
super block of the file system they apply to.  This patch allows the
event to be reported directly against the super block instead of an
inode.
