It is bisectable, all right; lookup_one_len() is OK there (note that
places converted to kern_path_locked() used to use it before the
conversion. It's just that lookup_one_len() is an overkill - we

calculated the full qstr for last component - both length and hash.
All that is left to do is actual __lookup_hash()...
