NAME

       find_inode_number - check for dentry with name

SYNOPSIS

       ino_t find_inode_number  (struct dentry * dir, struct qstr * name);

ARGUMENTS

       dir    directory to check

       name   Name to find.

DESCRIPTION

       Check  whether  a  dentry already exists for the given name, and return
       the inode number if it has an inode. Otherwise 0 is returned.

       This routine is used to post-process directory listings for filesystems
       using synthetic inode numbers, and is necessary to keep getcwd working.
