Subject[ 27/61] hfsplus: fix bless ioctl when used with hardlinks
3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Matthew Garrett <mjg@redhat.com>

commit 7dea9665fee828fb56db3bae5b9685d9fa006d33 upstream.

HFS+ doesn't really implement hard links - instead, hardlinks are indicated
by a magic file type which refers to an indirect node in a hidden
directory. The spec indicates that stat() should return the inode number
of the indirect node, but it turns out that this doesn't satisfy the
firmware when it's looking for a bootloader - it wants the catalog ID of
the hardlink file instead. Fix up this case.
