Eric Sandeen - March 28, 2013, 8:39 p.m.
This adds a new ioctl, EXT4_IOC_32BITHASH, which allows a
userspace application to request 32-bit rather than 64-bit
hashes from readdir on an indexed / dx / htree directory.

Gluster had been relying on the top bits of the d_off being
free; there are some reports that filling all 64 bits breaks
Samba as well.  The infrastructure to return 32-bit hashes
already exists; NFS can turn it on, and it's turned on for
32-bit processes as well.  So it's just a matter of flipping
on the f_mode flag before readdir starts.

Care needs to be taken that we don't change the FMODE flag
after readdir has been started, so we make sure that
filp->private_data has not yet been set before we set the flag.
(Thanks Zach!).

V2:
fix "readir" typo
rename goto target to *_out like others
remove parameter; we can't really ever turn this back off once it's used.
closing and reopening is the only way to get back to 64 bit hashes.
