Subject[14/90] ext4: Limit number of links that can be created by ext4_link()
2.6.31-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
(cherry picked from commit b05ab1dc3795e6f997fb0d34f38fce5012533c3e)
In ext4_link we need to check using EXT4_LINK_MAX, and not
EXT4_DIR_LINK_MAX(), since ext4_link() is creating hard links of
regular files, and not directories.
