Subject: Correct EXT3_TOPDIR_FL behaviour

Hi folks,

I'm looking at, where
the reporter is claiming that EXT3_TOPDIR_FL (chattr +T) is behaving
incorrectly by being inherited from the parent. As mentioned in the
bug, it also only seems to only make sense for directories but
ext{2,3,4} is happy to set it on anything. It seems to me that the
reporter is correct and the behaviour should be changed to prevent the
flag being inherited and to limit it to directories only. If there is
no disagreement I'll follow-up with patches accordingly.
