The function ocfs2_get_dentry calls iput(inode) to drop the reference
count of inode, and if the reference count hits 0, inode is freed.
However, in this function, it then reads inode->i_generation, which may
result in a use after free bug. This patch moves the put operation
later.

Fixes: 781f200cb7a("ocfs2: Remove masklog ML_EXPORT.")
