Hi Al, thank you very much. You are absolutely right.
->evict() should be called before ->put(), i.e.:

@@ -49,6 +49,8 @@ static void nsfs_evict(struct inode *inode)
	struct ns_common *ns = inode->i_private;
	clear_inode(inode);
+	if (ns->ops->evict)
+		ns->ops->evict(ns);
	ns->ops->put(ns);
 }

Does this look good?
