mnt: Protect the mountpoint hashtable with mount_lock

Protecting the mountpoint hashtable with namespace_sem was sufficient
until a call to umount_mnt was added to mntput_no_expire.  At which
point it became possible for multiple calls of put_mountpoint on
the same hash chain to happen on the same time.

Kristen Johansen <kjlx@templeofstupid.com> reported:
> This can cause a panic when simultaneous callers of put_mountpoint
> attempt to free the same mountpoint.  This occurs because some callers
> hold the mount_hash_lock, while others hold the namespace lock.  Some
> even hold both.

Al Viro observed that the simple fix is to switch from using the namespace_sem
to the mount_lock to protect the mountpoint hash table.

I have taken Al's suggested patch moved put_mountpoint in pivot_root
(instead of taking mount_lock an additional time), and have replaced
new_mountpoint with get_mountpoint a function that does the hash table
lookup and addition under the mount_lock.   The introduction of get_mounptoint
ensures that only the mount_lock is needed to manipulate the mountpoint
hashtable.

d_set_mounted is modified to only set DCACHE_MOUNTED if it is not
already set.  This allows get_mountpoint to use the setting of
DCACHE_MOUNTED to ensure adding a struct mountpoint for a dentry
happens exactly once.
