ovl: allow redirect_dir to default to "on"

This patch introduces a kernel config option and a module param.  Both can
be used independently to turn the default value of redirect_dir on or off.

+	  If this config option is enabled then overlay filesystems will use
+	  redirects when renaming directories by default.  In this case it is
+	  still possible to turn off redirects globally with the
+	  "redirect_dir=off" module option or on a filesystem instance basis
+	  with the "redirect_dir=off" mount option.
+	  Note, that redirects are not backward compatible.  That is, mounting
+	  an overlay which has redirects on a kernel that doesn't support this
+	  feature will have unexpected results.
