Er? It's a clear regression since 3.16; shouldn't it go into mainline
before 3.17-final? Another thing: AFAICS, if kernfs_fill_super() fails,
you get unbalanced kernfs_put() on the cleanup path - kernfs_kill_sb()
will be called in those cases as well. IOW, we'd better move that
in kernfs_fill_super() all way up to the point before kernfs_get_inode().
