add formats for dentry/file pathnames
New formats: %p[dD][234]?. The next pointer is interpreted as struct dentry * or struct file * resp. ('d' => dentry, 'D' => file) and the last component(s) of pathname are printed (%pd => just the last one, %pd2 => the last two, etc.) Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
