Subject: [PATCH 6/6] ext4: 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 only NODUMP and NOATIME to be
set on non-regular file, non-directories.

Introduces 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.
