I don't like the looks of this patch. It makes sense for NFS to error
out of d_revalidate() when passed a NULL nameidata pointer because NFS
actually uses the nameidata to do something useful. That can't be said
about the other filesystems in this patch.

Why not handle the other filesystems like the previous fixes you
referenced in your original email by checking for a non-NULL nd like
this:

if (nd && nd->flags & LOOKUP_RCU)
return -ECHILD;
I'm also not sure about the printk in the NFS case. Instead of littering
the logs, we should probably just disallow the stacked filesystem (are
we talking about eCryptfs here?) from mounting on top of NFS in the
first place.
