David Howells July 13, 2020, 4:31 p.m. UTC
Remove the tree of active dentries from the cachefiles_cache struct and
instead set a flag, S_CACHE_FILE, on the backing inode to indicate that
this file is in use by the kernel so as to ward off other kernel users.

This simplifies the code a lot and also prevents two overlain caches from
fighting with each other.
