The function ovl_dir_real_file() currently uses the semaphore of the
inode to synchronize write to the upperfile cache field.

However, this function will get called by ovl_ioctl_set_flags(), which
utilizes the inode semaphore too. In this case ovl_dir_real_file() will
try to claim a lock that is owned by a function in its call stack, which
won't get released before ovl_dir_real_file() returns.

Define a dedicated semaphore for the upperfile cache, so that the
deadlock won't happen.

Fixes: 61536bed2149 ("ovl: support [S|G]ETFLAGS and FS[S|G]ETXATTR ioctls for directories")

Sorry for lack of changelog.

A missing replacement of inode_lock() is added in v2.
