Subject: [PATCH v2 2/2] fsopen: use square brackets around "fscontext"

Make the name of the anon inode fd "[fscontext]" instead of "fscontext".
This is minor but most core-kernel anon inode fds already carry square
brackets around their name:


For the sake of consistency lets do the same for the fscontext anon inode
fd that comes with the new mount api.

v1: patch not present
- David Howells <>:
  - remove unneeded reference from commit message and split paragraph to
    place list of anon inode fds in between
