Ok, so I think that patch is still probably the right way to go, but
it's broken for a silly reason: because it's not using iget_locked()
any more, it also needs to remove the now unnecessary (and actively
incorrect) call to unlock_new_inode().

So remove that one line too, and maybe it could even work. Still not
*tested*, though.
