Subject[PATCH -rc2-mm2] update tmpfs for new delete_inode behavior
LTP on tmpfs hits kernel BUG at mm/shmem.c:680!  shmem_delete_inode needs
to truncate_inode_pages for itself now. It's not immediately obvious since
many cases get covered by shmem_truncate's followup truncate_inode_pages:
maybe with thought we can just call it once, but right now fix the BUG.
