Subject: ext4: don't inherit inappropriate inode flags from parent
From: "Duane Griffin" <[email protected]>

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.
