Default eCryptfs: Prevent file create race condition

The file creation path prematurely called d_instantiate() and
unlock_new_inode() before the eCryptfs inode info was fully
allocated and initialized and before the eCryptfs metadata was written
to the lower file.

This could result in race conditions in subsequent file and inode
operations leading to unexpected error conditions or a null pointer
dereference while attempting to use the unallocated memory.

Upstream: b59db43ad4434519feb338eacb01d77eb50825c5

This is the upstream commit backported to ubuntu-oneiric/master-next. There is
a minor change from the upstream commit to work around the lack of
bf6c7f6c7bd0ea779757d35b5fdc9f9157f056b3 in Oneiric.
