Actually I don't really care what this line means, but someone really
told me that .evict_inode() is called on inode is finally removed
because he saw this line.

In practice, I have no idea what the above line (especially the word i_nlink
== 0) mainly emphasizes, just from some documentation (not even refer some code):

Documentation/filesystems/porting.rst
326 **mandatory**
327
328 ->clear_inode() and ->delete_inode() are gone; ->evict_inode() should
329 be used instead. It gets called whenever the inode is evicted, whether it has
330 remaining links or not.

And it seems it's the same comment exists in ext2/ext4. But yes, it's up
to you. However, it misleaded someone and I had to explain more about this.

Thanks,
Gao Xiang
