Subjectfs: break out inode LRU operations from node_lock
Hi Al,

The following patches break the inode LRU operations and the first half of
iput_final() out from under the inode_lock. I included the dispose_one_inode
factoring patch to isolate the inode_lock from iput_final() completely. It's
easy enough to drop if you don't want that right now.

It passes xfstests on 1-, 2- and 8-way VMs, survives 8-way parallel
create/traverse/unlink workloads with 0, 1 and 65536 byte files on XFS and
ext4, and shows no problems with looping 50-client dbench runs on XFS or ext4.

The patches should apply to your current merge-stem tree.
