    Linux 3.17: Deal with d_splice_alias errors
    In 3.17 the logic in d_splice_alias has changed.  Of interest to
    us is the fact that it will now return an EIO error if it finds
    an existing connected directory for the dentry, where it would
    previously have added a new alias for it.  As a result the end
    user can get EIO errors when accessing any file in a volume
    if the volume was first accessed through a different path (ex:
    RO path vs RW path).
    This commit just restores the old behaviour, adding the directory
    alias manually in the error case, which is what older versions
    of d_splice_alias used to do.
