[PATCH] eCryptfs: readdir fix for seeking in directory streams

From: Michael Halcrow
Date: Mon Sep 25 2006 - 16:50:37 EST

The lower file's f_pos needs to be set to the f_pos of the eCryptfs
file passed into readdir() in order to correctly handle seeks on
directory streams.

This patch also properly initializes the file_info struct to all
0's. This initialization is not strictly necessary for the code as it
is currently in the kernel, but without this patch, nasty bugs can
show up when anyone makes changes to the file_info struct (one such
future change may include a pointer to persistent directory read state
