Subject: [PATCH 1/6] ext2: don't inherit inappropriate inode flags from parent

At present BTREE/INDEX is the only flag that new ext2 inodes do NOT
inherit from their parent. In addition prevent the flags DIRTY, ECOMPR,
INDEX, IMAGIC and TOPDIR from being inherited. List inheritable flags
explicitly to prevent future flags from accidentally being inherited.

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

This is v2 with inheritable flags now explicitly specified, as per Andreas'
request. The BTREE flag has also been removed as it is just an alias for
INDEX, as also pointed out by Andreas.
