Subject: [PATCH 1/9] ext4: remove ext4_dir_open()

From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@...gle.com>

Since encrypted directories can be opened without their encryption key
being available, and each readdir tries to set up the key, trying to set
up the key in ->open() too isn't really useful.

Just remove it so that directories don't need an ->open() method
anymore, and so that we eliminate a use of fscrypt_get_encryption_info()
(which I'd like to stop exporting to filesystems).
