Subject[129/262] VFS: Fix automount for negative autofs dentries
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

commit 5a30d8a2b8ddd5102c440c7e5a7c8e1fd729c818 upstream.
[ backport for 3.0.x: LOOKUP_PARENT => LOOKUP_CONTINUE by Chuck Ebbert
<cebbert@redhat.com> ]

Autofs may set the DCACHE_NEED_AUTOMOUNT flag on negative dentries. These
need attention from the automounter daemon regardless of the LOOKUP_FOLLOW flag.
