The function d_prune_aliases has the problem that it will only prune
aliases thare are completely unused.  It will not remove aliases for
the dcache or even think of removing mounts from the dcache.  For that
behavior d_invalidate is needed.

To use d_invalidate replace d_prune_aliases with d_find_alias followed
by d_invalidate and dput.

For completeness the directory and the non-directory cases are
separated because in theory (although not in currently in practice for
proc) directories can only ever have a single dentry while
non-directories can have hardlinks and thus multiple dentries.
As part of this separation use d_find_any_alias for directories
to spare d_find_alias the extra work of doing that.

Plus the differences between d_find_any_alias and d_find_alias makes
it clear why the directory and non-directory code and not share code.

To make it clear these routines now invalidate dentries rename
proc_prune_siblings_dache to proc_invalidate_siblings_dcache, and rename
proc_sys_prune_dcache proc_sys_invalidate_dcache.

V2: Split the directory and non-directory cases.  To make this
    code robust to future changes in proc.
