Subject: [PATCH 2/2] vfs: force reval on dentry of bind mounted files for LOOKUP_OPEN

In the case of a bind mounted file, the path walking code will assume
that a cached dentry is valid and doesn't revalidate it. This is a
problem for NFSv4 in a way that's similar to LAST_BIND symlinks.

Fix this by revalidating the dentry if LOOKUP_OPEN is set and
__follow_mount returns true.
