fsnotify: allow groups to add private data to events
inotify needs per group information attached to events. This patch allows groups to attach private information and implements a callback so that information can be freed when an event is being destroyed. Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com> Acked-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk> Cc: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>
