Subject: [PATCH] ufs: fix deadlocks after mutex merge

Commit 0244756edc4b ("ufs: sb mutex merge + mutex_destroy") introduces
deadlocks in ufs_new_inode() and ufs_free_inode() that call lock_ufs()
being already invoked with mutex held.

ufs_free_inode() is always invoked with mutex locked, while
ufs_new_inode() is called with mutex locked two times of four.

The patch proposes to resolve the issue by agreement to call
ufs_new_inode() and ufs_free_inode() with mutex unheld.

Found by Linux Driver Verification project (linuxtesting.org).
