It looks like it would suffice, but it's way too much boilerplate for my
taste ;-/

Most of your headache here comes from messing with slab setup and the
only reason for that is being unable to free stuff into inode_cachep.
So grep for inode_cachep would be a good idea, and it digs up the
following sucker:
void free_inode_nonrcu(struct inode *inode)
{
kmem_cache_free(inode_cachep, inode);
}
EXPORT_SYMBOL(free_inode_nonrcu);

IOW, you need nothing on ->alloc_inode() side and for ->destroy_inode()
just do call_rcu() of a callback, that would kfree(inode->link) if
it was a symlink, then call free_inode_nonrcu(inode).

Considerably smaller patch that way...
