Subject: [PATCH RFC 1/9] fs: switch timespec64 fields in inode to discrete
 integers

This shaves 8 bytes off struct inode with a garden-variety Fedora
Kconfig, but it moves the i_lock into the previous cacheline, away from
the fields it protects. To remedy that, move the i_generation just after
the nanosecond fields, which moves the 4 byte hole down next to
i_fsnotify_mask.
