ecryptfs: Bugfix for error related to ecryptfs_hash_buckets
The function ecryptfs_uid_hash wrongly assumes that the second parameter to hash_long() is the number of hash buckets instead of the number of hash bits. This patch fixes that and renames the variable ecryptfs_hash_buckets to ecryptfs_hash_bits to make it clearer.
