Merge branch 'work.lookup' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/vfs

Pull more ->lookup() cleanups from Al Viro:
 "Some ->lookup() instances are still overcomplicating the life
  for themselves, open-coding the stuff that would be handled by
  d_splice_alias() just fine.

  Simplify a couple of such cases caught this cycle and document
  d_splice_alias() intended use"

* 'work.lookup' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/vfs:
  Document d_splice_alias() calling conventions for ->lookup() users.
  simplify btrfs_lookup()
  clean erofs_lookup()

On success you get a new struct file sharing the mount/dentry with the

->lookup() instances doing an equivalent of
if (IS_ERR(inode))
return ERR_CAST(inode);
return d_splice_alias(inode, dentry);
don't need to bother with the check - d_splice_alias() will do the
right thing when given ERR_PTR(...) as inode. Moreover, passing NULL
inode to d_splice_alias() will also do the right thing (equivalent of
d_add(dentry, NULL); return NULL;), so that kind of special cases
also doesn't need a separate treatment.
