Moving such a cheap operation outside the splinlock won't make any
difference in real life.

And anyway the biggest problem with fc->lock is not contention (hold
for long period of time), I would guess, but cachline pingponging
(being acquired on different CPUs one after the other).

So there's definitely work to do regarding locking in fuse, but it
needs a bigger axe.
