get_next_ino has a number of problems:

- It uses and returns a uint, which is susceptible to become overflowed
  if a lot of volatile inodes that use get_next_ino are created.
- It's global, with no specificity per-sb or even per-filesystem. This
  means it's not that difficult to cause inode number wraparounds on a
  single device, which can result in having multiple distinct inodes
  with the same inode number.

This patch adds a per-superblock counter that mitigates the second case.
This design also allows us to later have a specific i_ino size
per-device, for example, allowing users to choose whether to use 32- or
64-bit inodes for each tmpfs mount. This is implemented in the next
commit.
