Subject: [PATCH 3/3] lguest: force file->private_data to be NULL on open()

if we depend on private_data being NULL in write() before initialize()
make sure it is NULL after open().

Signed-off-by: Martin Kepplinger <martink@...teo.de>

I'm not completely sure if this patch is needed and am still investigating.
What do you think? open() could be called by the user I guess. Does
lguest_user.c depend on private_data being NULL on a first write()?
