cifs_get_root shouldn't use path with tree name
When a server returns the optional flag SMB_SHARE_IS_IN_DFS in response to a tree connect, cifs_build_path_to_root() will return a pathname which includes the hostname. This causes problems with cifs_get_root() which separates each component and does a lookup for each component of the path which in this case will incorrectly include looking up the hostname component as a path component. We encountered a problem with dfs shares hosted by a Netapp. When connecting to nodes pointed to by the DFS share. The tree connect for these nodes return SMB_SHARE_IS_IN_DFS resulting failures in lookup in cifs_get_root(). RH bz: 1373153 The patch was tested against a Netapp simulator and by a user using an actual Netapp server.
