Seeing the way this worked out, is there a reason to have separate
vfs_ioc_setflags_flush_data() instead of folding the functionality in
vfs_ioc_setflags_check() (possibly renaming it to
vfs_ioc_setflags_prepare() to indicate it does already some changes)? I
don't see any place that would need these two separated...

Also this sets S_IMMUTABLE whenever vfs_ioc_setflags_need_flush() returns
true. That is currently the right thing but seems like a landmine waiting
to trip? So I'd just drop the vfs_ioc_setflags_need_flush() abstraction to
make it clear what's going on.
