I am sorry, but have you even attempted to trigger that codepath?
Just to test your patch...

FWIW, the patch is completely broken.  Obviously so, since you
have dput() done just before goto restart and dput() in very
much capable of blocking.  It should never be called with spinlocks
held.  And if you look at __dentry_kill() (well, dentry_unlink_inode()
called by __dentry_kill()), you will see that it bloody well *DOES*
drop inode->i_lock.
