This patchset fixes a few directory traversal issues, where fill_directory()
would traverse into directories that it shouldn't and not traverse into
directories that it should (one of which was originally reported on this
list at [1]). And it includes a few cleanups

Changes since v4:

 * Tweak the trace2 statistics emitting a bit, as per suggestions from Jeff.
 * Introduce a new readdir_skip_dot_and_dotdot() helper at the end of the
   series, and use it everywhere we repeat the same code to skip '.' and
   '..' entries from readdir. Also use it in dir.c's read_cached_dir() so we
   can be consistent about skipping it, even for statistics, across
   platforms.

If anyone has any ideas about a better place to put the "Some sidenotes"
from the sixth commit message rather than keeping them in a random commit
message, that might be helpful.

Sorry that I've been sleeping on this series since v1. I re-read this
version from scratch and only found a couple nitpicks.

I don't have any better ideas, sorry.

Thanks,
