9p: Define and implement TLINK for 9P2000.L
Venkateswararao Jujjuri (JV) [Thu, 3 Jun 2010 22:16:59 +0000 (15:16 -0700)]
This patch adds a helper function to get the dentry from inode and
uses it in creating a Hardlink

SYNOPSIS

size[4] Tlink tag[2] dfid[4] oldfid[4] newpath[s]

size[4] Rlink tag[2]

DESCRIPTION

Create a link 'newpath' in directory pointed by dfid linking to oldfid path.

[sripathik@in.ibm.com : p9_client_link should not free req structure
if p9_client_rpc has returned an error.]
