Introduce a helper function for filesystems to call when processing
->setattr() on a possibly-encrypted inode.  It handles enforcing that an
encrypted file can only be truncated if its encryption key is available.

+ * @dentry: dentry through which the inode is being changed
+ * @attr: attributes to change
+ *
+ * Prepare for ->setattr() on a possibly-encrypted inode.  On an encrypted file,
+ * most attribute changes are allowed even without the encryption key.  However,
+ * without the encryption key we do have to forbid truncates.  This is needed
+ * because the size being truncated to may not be a multiple of the filesystem
+ * block size, and in that case we'd have to decrypt the final block, zero the
+ * portion past i_size, and re-encrypt it.  (We *could* allow truncating to a
+ * filesystem block boundary, but it's simpler to just forbid all truncates ---
+ * and we already forbid all other contents modifications without the key.)
+ *
+ * Return: 0 on success, -ENOKEY if the key is missing, or another -errno code
+ * if a problem occurred while setting up the encryption key.
