eCryptfs: fix possible fault in ecryptfs_sync_page
This will avoid a possible fault in ecryptfs_sync_page(). In the function, eCryptfs calls sync_page() method of a lower filesystem without checking its existence. However, there are many filesystems that don't have this method including network filesystems such as NFS, AFS, and so forth. They may fail when an eCryptfs page is waiting for lock.
