Hey Jeffrey and Dan - thanks for the patch! Unfortunately, I think this
would allow the eCryptfs inode's nlink count to get out of sync with the
lower inode's nlink count in the case of direct manipulation to the
lower filesystem.

Is the condition that you're trying to fix a result of going through the
this code path?

ecryptfs_unlink() -> ecryptfs_do_unlink() -> vfs_unlink() -> nfs_unlink() -> nfs_sillyrename() -> nfs_async_unlink()
