VFS: we need to set LOOKUP_JUMPED on mountpoint crossing

Mountpoint crossing is similar to following procfs symlinks - we do
not get ->d_revalidate() called for dentry we have arrived at, with
unpleasant consequences for NFS4.

Simple way to reproduce the problem in mainline:

    cat >/tmp/a.c <<'EOF'
    #include <unistd.h>
    #include <fcntl.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
            struct flock fl = {.l_type = F_RDLCK, .l_whence = SEEK_SET, .l_len = 1};
            if (fcntl(0, F_SETLK, &fl))
    cc /tmp/a.c -o /tmp/test

then on nfs4:

    mount --bind file1 file2
    /tmp/test < file1		# ok
    /tmp/test < file2		# spews "setlk: No locks available"...

What happens is the missing call of ->d_revalidate() after mountpoint
crossing and that's where NFS4 would issue OPEN request to server.

The fix is simple - treat mountpoint crossing the same way we deal with
following procfs-style symlinks.  I.e.  set LOOKUP_JUMPED...
