Subject[patch 41/50] Smack: fuse mount hang fix
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------

From: Casey Schaufler <casey@schaufler-ca.com>

upstream commit: e97dcb0eadbb821eccd549d4987b653cf61e2374

The d_instantiate hook for Smack can hang on the root inode of a
filesystem if the file system code has not really done all the set-up.
Fuse is known to encounter this problem.

This change detects an attempt to instantiate a root inode and addresses
it early in the processing, before any attempt is made to do something
that might hang.
