Subject[patch 45/50] eCryptfs: remove unnecessary page decrypt call
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------

From: Michael Halcrow <mhalcrow@us.ibm.com>

upstream commit: d3e49afbb66109613c3474f2273f5830ac2dcb09

The page decrypt calls in ecryptfs_write() are both pointless and buggy.
Pointless because ecryptfs_get_locked_page() has already brought the page
up to date, and buggy because prior mmap writes will just be blown away by
the decrypt call.

This patch also removes the declaration of a now-nonexistent function
ecryptfs_write_zeros().

Thanks to Eric Sandeen and David Kleikamp for helping to track this
down.

Eric said:

fsx w/ mmap dies quickly ( < 100 ops) without this, and survives
nicely (to millions of ops+) with it in place.
