Subject[ 12/34] Ban ecryptfs over ecryptfs
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

(cherry picked from commit 4403158ba295c8e36f6736b1bb12d0f7e1923dac)

This is a seriously simplified patch from Eric Sandeen; copy of
rationale follows:
===
mounting stacked ecryptfs on ecryptfs has been shown to lead to bugs
in testing. For crypto info in xattr, there is no mechanism for handling
this at all, and for normal file headers, we run into other trouble:

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000008
IP: [<ffffffffa015b0b3>] ecryptfs_d_revalidate+0x43/0xa0 [ecryptfs]
...
There doesn't seem to be any good usecase for this, so I'd suggest just
disallowing the configuration.

Based on a patch originally, I believe, from Mike Halcrow.
