Don't know.  Well, there's nesting (in ovl_nlink_end()) but I don't
see why that should be an issue.

I see why Amir suggested moving away from scoped guards, but that also
introduces the possibility of subtle bugs if we don't audit every one
of those sites carefully...

Maybe patchset should be restructured to first do the
override_creds_light() conversion without guards, and then move over
to guards.   Or the other way round, I don't have a preference.  But
mixing these two independent changes doesn't sound like a great idea
in any case.
