Not possible for the cases it matters. fsnotify_put_mark() just decrements
the refcount. If someone is adding mark to the list, he is by definition
holding one reference so racing fsnotify_put_mark() cannot be dropping the
last one and so the result of the check doesn't really matter.

OK, I'll write it and send it.
