proc: Use nd_jump_link in proc_ns_follow_link
Update proc_ns_follow_link to use nd_jump_link instead of just manually updating nd.path.dentry. This fixes the BUG_ON(nd->inode != parent->d_inode) reported by Dave Jones and reproduced trivially with mkdir /proc/self/ns/uts/a. Sigh it looks like the VFS change to require use of nd_jump_link happend while proc_ns_follow_link was baking and since the common case of proc_ns_follow_link continued to work without problems the need for making this change was overlooked.
