Default Adds support for the dentry lookup from path or major:minor couple during target security check

From: Ondrej Kozina <okozina@redhat.com>

Translation of the major:minor couple into dentry with inode. AFAIK there's no
proper way to do it because of the fact that you can have posibly many dentries
asociated with one major:minor couple. I lean to propose a patch for the block
layer that would allow to define ownership of block device. Right now I use
inode in block_device structure for that purpose, but it's simple inode w/o
support for extended attributes. Moreover the inode in bdev pseudo-fs is not
accessible from userspace. If we got support for block device ownership, it
would easier to know whether the user is owner or not. I'm aware that this
solution is not very credible. I would most welcome any comments on that
particular problem.
