    LINUX: Avoid multiple d_invalidate loops
    Currently, in afs_linux_lookup, we put an artificial limit on how many
    times we loop through all dentry aliases, trying ti d_invalidate all
    of them. Instead of using an arbitrary limit, we can just go through
    all of them once, by using d_prune_aliases. This should be faster, and
    removes some of the logic required here.
    Note that this does remove our check for DCACHE_DISCONNECTED in each
    alias' d_flags.  This should not be a problem, since we will still use
    any remaining DCACHE_DISCONNECTED dentry via d_splice_alias if one
    still exists.
