See the function here:
https://github.com/mirrors/linux-2.6/blob/70d1f365568e0cdbc9f4ab92428e1830fdb09ab0/fs/dcache.c

The last patches were against 2.6.38-rc2 because the dcache layer got
rewritten in 2.6.38 http://lwn.net/Articles/421784/

__dentry_path is now static (in fs/dcache.c) and does not take the
necessary locks.

dentry_path_raw is __dentry_path with locks

    hostfs: simplify locking

    Remove dcache_lock locking from hostfs filesystem, and move it into dcache
    helpers. All that is required is a coherent path name. Protection from
    concurrent modification of the namespace after path name generation is not
    provided in current code, because dcache_lock is dropped before the path is
    used.
