Irrelevant comment. sb must always be available from @data.

        const struct path *path = fsnotify_data_path(data, data_type);
+       const struct super_block *sb = fsnotify_data_sb(data, data_type);

All the games with @data @inode and @dir args are irrelevant to this.
sb should always be available from @data and it does not matter
if fsnotify_data_inode() is the same as @inode, @dir or neither.
All those inodes are anyway on the same sb.

Thanks,
Amir.
