BTW, another suspicious patch is d_splice_alias() one; note that if we
_ever_ pick a dentry that isn't disconnected, we are deeply fucked.
d_move() without the old parent locked is a Bad Thing(tm). I don't see
how that could've triggered without another bug somewhere, but what's
happening in d_splice_alias() right now is wrong.
