... and unfortunately there are two more, exactly like debugfs -
securityfs and apparmorfs, found while sorting out the series
for separate rcu-delayed counterpart of ->destroy_inode().

Both are in vfs.git#fixes.  Which way should that go - directly or
via linux-security.git?  Both are stable fodder, in theory, but
much harder to hit than their ubifs/debugfs/bpf counterparts...
