anon_inodes: mark the anon inode private
Inotify was switched to use anon_inode instead of its own private filesystem which only had one inode in commit c44dcc56d2b5c7 "switch inotify_user to anon_inode" The problem with this is that now the inotify inode is not a distinct inode which can be managed by LSMs. userspace tools which use inotify were allowed to use the inotify inode but may not have had permission to do read/write type operations on the anon_inode. After looking at the anon_inode and its users it looks like the best solution is to just mark the anon_inode as S_PRIVATE so the security system will ignore it.
