Subject[07/29] ecryptfs: initialize private persistent file before dereferencing pointer
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Erez Zadok <ezk@cs.sunysb.edu>

commit e27759d7a333d1f25d628c4f7caf845c51be51c2 upstream.

Ecryptfs_open dereferences a pointer to the private lower file (the one
stored in the ecryptfs inode), without checking if the pointer is NULL.
Right afterward, it initializes that pointer if it is NULL. Swap order of
statements to first initialize. Bug discovered by Duckjin Kang.
