[PATCH v2 09/10] vfs: embed getname_info inside of names_cache allocation if possible



In the common case where a name is much smaller than PATH_MAX, an extra
allocation for struct getname_info is unnecessary. Before allocating a
separate one, try to embed the getname_info inside the buffer first. If
it turns out that that's not long enough, then fall back to allocating a
separate getname_info struct and redoing the copy.
