Subject[AppArmor 30/45] Make d_path() consistent across mount operations
The path that __d_path() computes can become slightly inconsistent when it
races with mount operations: it grabs the vfsmount_lock when traversing mount
points but immediately drops it again, only to re-grab it when it reaches the
next mount point. The result is that the filename computed is not always
consisent, and the file may never have had that name. (This is unlikely, but
still possible.)

Fix this by grabbing the vfsmount_lock when the first mount point is reached,
and holding onto it until the d_cache lookup is completed.
