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

------------------
From: Duane Griffin <duaneg@dghda.com>

(cherry picked from commit 8fa43a81b97853fc69417bb6054182e78f95cbeb)

At present INDEX and EXTENTS are the only flags that new ext4 inodes do
NOT inherit from their parent.  In addition prevent the flags DIRTY,
ECOMPR, IMAGIC, TOPDIR, HUGE_FILE and EXT_MIGRATE from being inherited.
List inheritable flags explicitly to prevent future flags from
accidentally being inherited.

This fixes the TOPDIR flag inheritance bug reported at
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9866.
