I think quota is innocent in this ;). We start a transaction in
ext3_dquot_drop() for quite some time already. The problem is really in
inode_alloc_security() and Josef pointed out. We really aren't allowed to
allocate with GFP_KERNEL there because the reclaim code could as well
decide to just write an inode on a different filesystem...
