[PATCH 1/2] ecryptfs: fix uid translation for setxattr on security.capability

Prior to commit 7c03e2cda4a5 ("vfs: move cap_convert_nscap() call into
vfs_setxattr()") the translation of nscap->rootid did not take stacked
filesystems (overlayfs and ecryptfs) into account.

That patch fixed the overlay case, but made the ecryptfs case worse.

Restore old the behavior for ecryptfs that existed before the overlayfs
fix.  This does not fix ecryptfs's handling of complex user namespace
setups, but it does make sure existing setups don't regress.
