Reporting 'No such device' was actually bug which was introduced some
time ago but nobody probably noticed it... It was introduce when quota
code was converted from device numbers to 'bdev' structures.
I also fixed one bug in quotaon() call however I'm not sure wheter it
could cause the freeze. Anyway patch is attached, try it and tell me
about the changes.
