d_instantiate - fill in inode information for a dentry
void d_instantiate(struct dentry * entry, struct inode * inode);
Fill in inode information in the entry.

NOTE! This assumes that the inode count has been incremented (or otherwise set) by the caller to indicate that it is now in use by the dcache.
