Subject: [PATCH 4/8] xfs: Move ilock before transaction start in xfs_setattr_size()

In xfs we first take ilock and start transaction afterwards. We should obey
this order in all places because otherwise we can create the following deadlock
with filesystem freezing: One process holds ilock and blocks on s_frozen ==
SB_FREEZE_TRANS in xfs_trans_alloc(), another process has a transaction started
(thus blocking freezing) and blocks on ilock. So we have to take ilock earlier
in xfs_setattr_size().
