Good.

don't we have to iput() the inode here too if pstore_writefile() fails?

So this version is ok. However, I'd go and move the error paths to
labels near the end of the function since this makes the main part of
what it does more readable, IMHO. IOW, something like this (untested, of
course):

int pstore_mkfile(char *name, char *data, size_t size, struct timespec time,
void *private)
{
struct dentry *root = pstore_sb->s_root;
struct dentry *dentry;
struct inode *inode;
int rc;
rc = -ENOMEM;
inode = pstore_get_inode(pstore_sb, root->d_inode, S_IFREG | 0444, 0);
if (!inode)
goto fail;
inode->i_private = private;

mutex_lock(&root->d_inode->i_mutex);

rc = -ENOSPC;
dentry = d_alloc_name(root, name);
if (IS_ERR(dentry))
goto fail_alloc;
d_add(dentry, inode);

mutex_unlock(&root->d_inode->i_mutex);

if (!pstore_writefile(inode, dentry, data, size))
goto fail_write;
if (time.tv_sec)
inode->i_mtime = inode->i_ctime = time;
return 0;

fail_write:
inode->i_nlink--;
mutex_lock(&root->d_inode->i_mutex);
d_delete(dentry);
dput(dentry);
/* we fall through to unlock the mutex below */
fail_alloc:
mutex_unlock(&root->d_inode->i_mutex);
iput(inode);

fail:
return rc;
}

Hmm.
