Overlayfs never had full support for immutable/append-only files.
Whatever works is covered by generic/079 and overlay/030 tests.
Both tests cover only upper files and directories.
generic/079 is notrun on kernel < 5.10 and passes on >= 5.10.

This series improves the t_immutable test program and adds two new

overlay/075 tests immutable/append-only lower files and directories -
the test fails on upstream kernel.  Fixing this requires some VFS API
changes that Miklos has proposed [1].

overlay/076 is a "dangerous" test that triggers a deadlock.
The deadlock was fixed in master and in stable kernel v5.10.15.


Changes since v1:
- Split the dangerous test
- Document fix commit
- Fix Eryu's minor review comments on t_immutable
