Subject[PATCH] eCryptfs: Remove retry loop in ecryptfs_readdir()
The retry block in ecryptfs_readdir() has been in the eCryptfs code
base for a while, apparently for no good reason. This loop could
potentially run without terminating. This patch removes the loop,
instead erroring out if vfs_readdir() on the lower file fails.
