Hm?  The watch.name we pass into the kernel is a <path> to the watch point.  
We use it to walk the filesystem up to the parent of the watch point.  The 
watch that is added into the filesystem has a watch->name eq "terminating 
file/dir name of <path>" -- We can only assume <path> is relevant for this 
walk for the reasons I mentioned in my prior e-mail.
