    BTW, ubifs plays funny games with i_nlink - decrements it early in
    unlink/rmdir/rename and then increments it back on failure. *If*
    we really want it that way, we need to use set_nlink() there. Frankly,
    I'd rather deal with drop_nlink() after the last possible failure
    exit... Unless there are serious reasons why that wouldn't work, that is.
    Artem?
