fsnotify: use unsigned char * for dentry->d_name.name
fsnotify was using char * when it passed around the d_name.name string internally but it is actually an unsigned char *. This patch switches fsnotify to use unsigned and should silence some pointer signess warnings which have popped out of xfs. I do not add -Wpointer-sign to the fsnotify code as there are still issues with kstrdup and strlen which would pop out needless warnings. Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com>
