rename generic_setattr
Despite its name it's now a generic implementation of ->setattr, but rather a helper to copy attributes from a struct iattr to the inode. Rename it to setattr_copy to reflect this fact. Signed-off-by: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
