Thank you, very much, Anton, for hacking on this over the weekend.

It's definitely not the prettiest thing, but there may be no easier
approach. One thing, the messy code is working around the list
changing, doesn't invalidate_inodes() have the same problem? If so, it
solves it differently.

I'm also curious if the I_WILL_FREE or i_count check fixed the bug. I
suspect the other fix did, but we probably still want this. Or at least
the I_WILL_FREE check.

Anyhow... I'll send out an updated inotify patch after some testing.
Thanks again.
