Subject: [PATCH v9 0/8] Clean up the case-insensitive lookup path


I'm resubmitting this as v9 since I think it has fallen through the
cracks :).  It is a collection of trivial fixes for casefold support on
ext4/f2fs. More details below.

It has been sitting on the list for a while and most of it is r-b
already. I'm keeping the tags for this submission, since there is no
modifications from previous submissions, apart from a minor conflict
resolution when merging to linus/master.



* Original commit letter

The case-insensitive implementations in f2fs and ext4 have quite a bit
of duplicated code.  This series simplifies the ext4 version, with the
goal of extracting ext4_ci_compare into a helper library that can be
used by both filesystems.  It also reduces the clutter from many
codeguards for CONFIG_UNICODE; as requested by Linus, they are part of
the codeflow now.

While there, I noticed we can leverage the utf8 functions to detect
encoded names that are corrupted in the filesystem. Therefore, it also
adds an ext4 error on that scenario, to mark the filesystem as

This series survived passes of xfstests -g quick.

  ext4: Simplify the handling of cached insensitive names
  f2fs: Simplify the handling of cached insensitive names
  libfs: Introduce case-insensitive string comparison helper
  ext4: Reuse generic_ci_match for ci comparisons
  f2fs: Reuse generic_ci_match for ci comparisons
  ext4: Log error when lookup of encoded dentry fails
  ext4: Move CONFIG_UNICODE defguards into the code flow
  f2fs: Move CONFIG_UNICODE defguards into the code flow
