ext4: report correct st_size for encrypted symlinks

commit 8c4bca10 upstream.

The stat() family of syscalls report the wrong size for encrypted
symlinks, which has caused breakage in several userspace programs.

Fix this by calling fscrypt_symlink_getattr() after ext4_getattr() for
encrypted symlinks.  This function computes the correct size by reading
and decrypting the symlink target (if it's not already cached).

For more details, see the commit which added fscrypt_symlink_getattr().

Fixes: f348c252 ("ext4 crypto: add symlink encryption")
