Dunno, it still seems like quite some complications (simple ones but
non-trivial amount of them) for what is rather a corner case. What if we
*internally* propagated the information that there's no inode info with
FILEID_ROOT fh? That means: No changes to fanotify_encode_fh_len(),
fanotify_encode_fh(), or fanotify_alloc_name_event(). In
copy_info_to_user() we just mangle FILEID_ROOT to FILEID_INVALID and that's
all. No useless padding, no specialcasing of copying etc. Am I missing
something?
