    No. This is complete junk; note that e.g. ls -lR will disrupt it, since
    lstat(2) will bump dentry refcount. The first part is more or less OK;
    the second makes no sense.

    What is it trying to do? Note that the first part also doesn't make a lot
    of sense, since you could be acquiring a write reference *right* *now*,
    just as that check passes. And you could finish getting it before you get
    to do anything else in generic_setlease().
