It's the same at ext2. I looked at the igrab()/iput() code it does some extra
locks which I'm afraid of at this stage. I'll postpone this to the next (next)
merge window, after I ran with it for a while.

I've put some prints and current code is correct. inode->i_nlink (the target
of inode_dec_link_count()) is 1 after exofs_new_inode() and 2 after
inode_inc_link_count() (Just before exofs_make_empty()). Very confusing, but
exofs_add_link() does not touch inode->i_nlink.

I will be posting a new set tomorrow

Thanks
Boaz
