Subject: [PATCH 01/10] mbcache: Don't reclaim used entries

Do not reclaim entries that are currently used by somebody from a
shrinker. Firstly, these entries are likely useful. Secondly, we will
need to keep such entries to protect pending increment of xattr block
refcount.

CC: stable@...r.kernel.org
Fixes: 82939d7999df ("ext4: convert to mbcache2")
