(the long-aged vfs veteran steps into the picture...)

It looks like the following sequence is done in the wrong order.
When vfs_unlink() is called from sys_unlink() it has taken a ref
on the inode and sys_unlink() does the last iput() but when called
from other callsites vfs_unlink() might do the last iput()

Can you reproduce with this patch? It should happen with some nfs
activity, I'll try to set up a scenario myself.
