Subject[PATCH v4] Revert "f2fs crypto: avoid unneeded memory allocation in ->readdir"
This reverts commit e06f86e61d7a67fe6e826010f57aa39c674f4b1b.


In some platforms (such as arm), high memory is used, then the
decrypting filename will cause panic, the reason see commit
569cf1876a32e574ba8a7fb825cd91bafd003882 ("f2fs crypto: allocate buffer
for decrypting filename"):

We got dentry pages from high_mem, and its address space directly goes into the
decryption path via f2fs_fname_disk_to_usr.
But, sg_init_one assumes the address is not from high_mem, so we can get this
panic since it doesn't call kmap_high but kunmap_high is triggered at the end.

kernel BUG at ../../../../../../kernel/mm/highmem.c:290!

Howerver, later patch:
commit e06f86e61d7a ("f2fs crypto: avoid unneeded memory allocation in ->readdir")
reverts the codes, which causes panic again in arm, so fix it back to the old version.
