There's no reason to add i_ino before adding it to the per-sb list,
we don't do so either for inodes acquired via iget. The fix is simply
to stop assigning i_ino in new_inode and call the helper to get it in
the place that need it after the call to new_inode. Later we can
even move to a lazy assignment scheme where needed. I'd also really
like to get a grip on why the simple counters if fine for some
filesystems while we need iunique() for others.
