Subject[PATCH 3/6] ext4: don't inherit inappropriate inode flags from parent
Date
At present INDEX and EXTENTS are the only flags that new ext4 inodes do
NOT inherit from their parent. In addition prevent the flags DIRTY, ECOMPR,
IMAGIC, TOPDIR, HUGE_FILE and EXT_MIGRATE from being inherited. List
inheritable flags explicitly to prevent future flags from accidentally being
inherited.

Signed-off-by: Duane Griffin <duaneg@dghda.com>

This is v2 with inheritable flags now explicitly specified, as per Andreas'
request.
