Merge branch 'cross-rename' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mszeredi/vfs
Pull renameat2 system call from Miklos Szeredi: "This adds a new syscall, renameat2(), which is the same as renameat() but with a flags argument. The purpose of extending rename is to add cross-rename, a symmetric variant of rename, which exchanges the two files. This allows interesting things, which were not possible before, for example atomically replacing a directory tree with a symlink, etc... This also allows overlayfs and friends to operate on whiteouts atomically. Andy Lutomirski also suggested a "noreplace" flag, which disables the overwriting behavior of rename. These two flags, RENAME_EXCHANGE and RENAME_NOREPLACE are only implemented for ext4 as an example and for testing" * 'cross-rename' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mszeredi/vfs: ext4: add cross rename support ext4: rename: split out helper functions ext4: rename: move EMLINK check up ext4: rename: create ext4_renament structure for local vars vfs: add cross-rename vfs: lock_two_nondirectories: allow directory args security: add flags to rename hooks vfs: add RENAME_NOREPLACE flag vfs: add renameat2 syscall vfs: rename: use common code for dir and non-dir vfs: rename: move d_move() up vfs: add d_is_dir()
