NAME

       d_instantiate - fill in inode information for a dentry

SYNOPSIS

       void d_instantiate  (struct dentry * entry, struct inode * inode);

ARGUMENTS

       entry  dentry to complete

       inode  inode to attach to this dentry

DESCRIPTION

       Fill in inode information in the entry.

       This turns negative dentries into productive full members of society.

       NOTE!  This  assumes  that  the  inode  count  has been incremented (or
       otherwise set) by the caller to indicate that it is now in use  by  the
       dcache.
