Here's a revised version of the patch which should avoid the BUG_ON,
which should make it be less annoying. We should really figure out
what's going on and fix it, though. It may be fixed by the recently
pushed quota race fixes, or at least there's a good chace that it's
related to a ext4 quota-releated WARN_ON that people have been
complaining about.
