Subject: [PATCH 5.13 136/156] vboxsf: Honor excl flag to the dir-inode create op

From: Hans de Goede <hdegoede@...hat.com>

commit cc3ddee97cff034cea4d095de4a484c92a219bf5 upstream.

Honor the excl flag to the dir-inode create op, instead of behaving
as if it is always set.

Note the old behavior still worked most of the time since a non-exclusive
open only calls the create op, if there is a race and the file is created
between the dentry lookup and the calling of the create call.

While at it change the type of the is_dir parameter to the
vboxsf_dir_create() helper from an int to a bool, to be consistent with
the use of bool for the excl parameter.

Fixes: 0fd169576648 ("fs: Add VirtualBox guest shared folder (vboxsf) support")
