[PATCH v6 00/10] audit: overhaul audit_names handling to allow for retrying on path-based syscalls

This patchset is another minor respin of the series that I posted June

The main impetus of this series to to allow the audit_names
infrastructure to properly handle the situation where the lookup and
operation on a path-based syscall is retried.

Along with that, there are a number of bugfixes in this patch, as well
as a few minor optimizations.

This series is available via the "audit" branch of my git tree as well:

    git://git.samba.org/jlayton/linux.git audit

I'd like to see this patchset go into 3.7 if at all possible.

Eric Paris (1):
  audit: make audit_compare_dname_path use parent_len helper

Jeff Layton (9):
  audit: remove unnecessary NULL ptr checks from do_path_lookup
  audit: pass in dentry to audit_copy_inode wherever possible
  audit: no need to walk list in audit_inode if name is NULL
  audit: reverse arguments to audit_inode_child
  audit: add a new "type" field to audit_names struct
  audit: set the name_len in audit_inode for parent lookups
  audit: remove dirlen argument to audit_compare_dname_path
  audit: optimize audit_compare_dname_path
  audit: overhaul __audit_inode_child to accomodate retrying
