This doesn't appear to be necessary.  parent_ino() is:

	spin_lock(&dentry->d_lock);
	res = dentry->d_parent->d_inode->i_ino;
	spin_unlock(&dentry->d_lock);

Since dentry is locked and referenced, ->d_parent is stable and positive.

In the encrypt+casefold patch I was reviewing, it's indeed necessary, but only
because there was a check of inode->i_flags added outside the locked region.
The following would be simpler:

        spin_lock(&dentry->d_lock);
        dir = dentry->d_parent->d_inode;
        *pino = dir->i_ino;
        needs_recovery = IS_ENCRYPTED(dir) && IS_CASEFOLDED(dir);
        spin_unlock(&dentry->d_lock);

BTW, d_find_any_alias() is unnecessary too.  This code should just be using
file_dentry(file) from f2fs_do_sync_file().
