    docker: Revert "vfs: take stat's dev from mnt->sb"
    This reverts commit ecfa1b0f7ba985e200e807941b5838943b266cb3.
    All non-directory objects on overlayfs should report an st_dev from
    lower or upper filesystem that is providing the object then call
    stat(2) on it(Documentation/filesystems/overlayfs.txt). But in our
    case file on overlayfs reports st_dev from overlayfs itself:
    e.g.: on VZ7 host device is 57 but should be 64768:
    mkdir /lower /upper /merged /work
    mount -t overlay overlay -olowerdir=/lower,upperdir=/upper,\
    workdir=/work /merged
    touch /merged/file
    stat /merged/file | grep Device | awk '{print $1$2}'
    cat /proc/self/mountinfo
      63 1 253:0 / / rw,relatime shared:1 - ext4
    /dev/mapper/virtuozzo_pcs7-root rw,data=ordered
      149 63 0:57 / /merged rw,relatime shared:81 - overlay overlay
    Reason is in sys_stat->vfs_stat->vfs_fstatat->vfs_getattr:
    1) Call ovl_getattr()->ovl_path_real() - find real object's path
    2) Call ovl_getattr()->vfs_getattr() - find real object's s_dev
    3) Replace it with overlay's s_dev, which is wrong.
    We do not have simfs - remove step (3) and stat will be fine again.
    *note: we need it for docker - when stat and fstat give different
    s_dev ldconfig in glibc breaks, and thus docker-ui tests break.
