But you _did_ support it up until
34286d66 "fs: rcu-walk aware d_revalidate method"

I see why you wouldn't want NULL nameidata in the NFSv4 specific
functions, but don't quite understand the opposition against it in NFSv3
(nfs_lookup_revalidate). The one-liner above would allow users to begin
using eCryptfs on top of NFSv3 clients immediately, with no side effects
to NFS.
