Subject: [PATCH 5/6] ext3: tighten restrictions on inode flags

At the moment there are few restrictions on which flags may be set on which
inodes. Specifically DIRSYNC may only be set on directories and IMMUTABLE
and APPEND may not be set on links. Tighten that to disallow TOPDIR being
set on non-directories and SECRM, UNRM, COMPR, SYNC, DIRTY, COMPRBLK,
NOCOMPR, ECOMPR, INDEX, JOURNAL_DATA and NOTAIL being set on anything but
regular files or directories.

Introduce a flags masking function which masks flags based on mode and use
it during inode creation and when flags are set via the ioctl to facilitate
future consistency.

Signed-off-by: Duane Griffin <duaneg@...da.com>

The specific flags masked out here are those suggested by Andreas, as well
as IMMUTABLE, which I included to match the behaviour of the existing code.

It would be good to get some review of these.
