IDGI.  OK, you open a file in the layer you want; good, but why the hell do you
*not* use the dentry/vfsmount from the same layer?

IOW, why does your path_open() get an explicit inode argument at all?  With the
rest of the work done in that series it looks like you should be able to use
vfs_open() instead...  Sure, for ovlfs file you want ->f_path on overlayfs and
not in a layer, but why do the same for those?

And why bother with override_creds at all?  What's wrong with simply passing
->creator_cred to path_open()/vfs_open()/whatnot?
