Thanks for reviewing the patch. Sorry for missing this. If it's
critical then I can upload another version of the patches to fix this.
Kindly let me know.

Yes, it is necessary as there are scenarios where a secure anon-inode
is to be created but there is no context_inode available. For
instance, in patch 4/4 of this series you'll see that when a secure
anon-inode is created in the userfaultfd syscall, context_inode isn't
available.
