dir_is_empty should open directory with CLOEXEC
This fixes a race where one thread is executing zfs_mount() while another thread forks and execs. If the fork occurs while the directory is open, the child process will inherit (but not necessarily close immediately) the open fd for the directory, preventing the mount.
