Subject: kernel: ext3/4: ext3/4_symlink lock oops

Some fun with long symlinks on ext3/4 fs with selinux on. This issue was
introduced in upstream commits ae54870a and df5e6223 (v3.0-rc1). I'm not
requesting a CVE name as I don't think anyone is affected by this issue
(I hope).

Upstream commits:

Thanks, Eugene
