  eCryptfs: Gracefully refuse miscdev file ops on inherited/passed files (2012-07-06 15:51:12 -0500)

----------------------------------------------------------------
Fixes an incorrect access mode check when preparing to open a file in the lower
filesystem. This isn't an urgent fix, but it is simple and the check was
obviously incorrect.

Also fixes a couple important bugs in the eCryptfs miscdev interface. These
changes are low risk due to the small number of users that use the miscdev
interface. I was able to keep the changes minimal and I have some cleaner, more
complete changes queued up for the next merge window that will build on these
patches.
