I reviewed locking contexts in all three functions that I changed when
backporting "deal with deadlock in d_walk()".  It's actually worse
than this:

- We don't hold this_parent->d_lock at the 'positive' label in
  have_submounts(), but it is unlocked after 'rename_retry'.
- There is an rcu_read_unlock() after the 'out' label in
  select_parent(), but it's not held at the 'goto out'.

Fix all three lock imbalances.
