cachefiles: fix the race between cachefiles_bury_object() and rmdir(2)
the victim might've been rmdir'ed just before the lock_rename(); unlike the normal callers, we do not look the source up after the parents are locked - we know it beforehand and just recheck that it's still the child of what used to be its parent. Unfortunately, the check is too weak - we don't spot a dead directory since its ->d_parent is unchanged, dentry is positive, etc. So we sail all the way to ->rename(), with hosting filesystems _not_ expecting to be asked renaming an rmdir'ed subdirectory. The fix is easy, fortunately - the lock on parent is sufficient for making IS_DEADDIR() on child safe.
