Trying to wrench this back on track ...

fscrypt_fname_disk_to_usr is called by:

if (cstr.len == 0)
Does not currently check de->name_len. I believe this check should
be added to __ext4_check_dir_entry() because a zero-length directory
entry can affect both encrypted and non-encrypted directory entries.
Same as ext4_readdir(). Should probably call ext4_check_dir_entry()?
Would be covered by a fix to ext4_check_dir_entry().
if (de->name_len == 0) {
Does not currently check de->name_len. Also affects non-encrypted
directory entries.

So of the six callers, two of them already check the dirent length for
being zero, and four of them ought to anyway, but don't. I think they
should be fixed, but clearly we don't historically check for this kind
of data corruption (strangely), so I don't think that's a reason to hold
up this patch until the individual filesystems are fixed.
