vfs: Don't exchange "short" filenames unconditionally.
Only exchange source and destination filenames
if flags contain RENAME_EXCHANGE.
In case if executable file was running and replaced by
other file /proc/PID/exe should still show correct file name,
not the old name of the file by which it was replaced.
The scenario when this bug manifests itself was like this:
* ALT Linux uses rpm and start-stop-daemon;
* during a package upgrade rpm creates a temporary file
for an executable to rename it upon successful unpacking;
* start-stop-daemon is run subsequently and it obtains
the (nonexistant) temporary filename via /proc/PID/exe
thus failing to identify the running process.
Note that "long" filenames (> DNAiME_INLINE_LEN) are still
exchanged without RENAME_EXCHANGE and this behaviour exists
long enough (should be fixed too apparently).
So this patch is just an interim workaround that restores
behavior for "short" names as it was before changes
introduced by commit da1ce0670c14 ("vfs: add cross-rename").
See https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/9/7/6 for details.
AV: the comments about being more careful with ->d_name.hash
than with ->d_name.name are from back in 2.3.40s; they
became obsolete by 2.3.60s, when we started to unhash the
target instead of swapping hash chain positions followed
by d_delete() as we used to do when dcache was first
