3.5.7.7 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Li Zefan <lizefan@huawei.com>

commit 63f43f55c9bbc14f76b582644019b8a07dc8219a upstream.

rename() will change dentry->d_name. The result of this race can
be worse than seeing partially rewritten name, but we might access
a stale pointer because rename() will re-allocate memory to hold
a longer name.

It's safe in the protection of dentry->d_lock.

v2: check NULL dentry before acquiring dentry lock.
