    ms/ovl: fix recursive oi->lock in ovl_link()
    linking a non-copied-up file into a non-copied-up parent results in a
    nested call to mutex_lock_interruptible(&oi->lock). Fix this by copying up
    target parent before ovl_nlink_start(), same as done in ovl_rename().
    ~/unionmount-testsuite$ ./run --ov -s
    ~/unionmount-testsuite$ ln /mnt/a/foo100 /mnt/a/dir100/
     WARNING: possible recursive locking detected
     ln/1545 is trying to acquire lock:
     00000000bcce7c4c (&ovl_i_lock_key[depth]){+.+.}, at:
     but task is already holding lock:
     0000000026d73d5b (&ovl_i_lock_key[depth]){+.+.}, at:
    [SzM: this seems to be a false positive, but doing the copy-up first is
    harmless and removes the lockdep splat]
