When we were using the bkl, we didn't care about dependencies against
other locks, but the mutex conversion created new ones, which is why
we have reiserfs_mutex_lock_safe(), which unlocks the reiserfs lock
before acquiring another mutex.

But this trick actually fails if we have acquired the reiserfs lock
recursively, as we try to unlock it to acquire the new mutex without
inverted dependency, but we eventually only decrease its depth.

This happens in the case of a nested inode creation/deletion.
Say we have no space left on the device, we create an inode
and tak the lock but fail to create its entry, then we release the
inode using iput(), which calls reiserfs_delete_inode() that takes
the reiserfs lock recursively. The path eventually ends up in
journal_begin() where we try to take the journal safely but we
fail because of the reiserfs lock recursion:

-------------------------------------------------------
vi/23454 is trying to acquire lock:
 (&journal->j_mutex){+.+...}, at: [<c110dac4>] do_journal_begin_r+0x64/0x2f0

but task is already holding lock:
 (&REISERFS_SB(s)->lock){+.+.+.}, at: [<c11106a8>] reiserfs_write_lock+0x28/0x40

which lock already depends on the new lock.

the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:

To fix this, use reiserfs_lock_once() from reiserfs_delete_inode()
which prevents from adding reiserfs lock recursion.
