Here's what I actually said:

	ext4_set_context() is only called when FS_IOC_SET_ENCRYPTION_POLICY sets
	an encryption policy on an empty directory, *or* when a new inode
	(regular, dir, or symlink) is created in an encrypted directory (thus
	inheriting encryption from its parent).

Just find the places where ->set_context() is called and follow them backwards.
