Subject(minor) patch for 2.1.72 fs/namei.c
The attached patch adds a call to shrink_dcache_parent() to the VFS
rmdir routine.

I noticed that the rmdir syscall doesn't include a test to verify that
the object to be deleted is actually a directory. Unless I've overlooked
something, it seems that this test should be added to the generic code
so that each fs doesn't have to include it.

Regards,
