Before this patch, btrfs check can only repair bad free space cache
inode mode (as it was the first case detected by tree-checker and reported)

But Murphy is always right, what may happen will finally happen, we have
users reporting bad inode mode in subvolume trees.
According to the creation time, it looks like some older kernel around
2014 is causing the problem.

Although the reported get the fs fixed by removing the offending old
files, it's still a bad thing that "btrfs check" can't fix it.

This patch will bring the repair functionality to all inodes, along with
needed test image.

The core complexity is in how to determine the correct imode.
This patch will use the following methods to determine the correct
  Do a DIR_INDEX/ITEM search to find a valid filetype then convert it to
  imode. If it works, this should be the most reliable method.

- DIR_INDEX/DIR_ITEM belong to this inode
  Then this inode must be a directory.

  This inode can be a regular file or soft link.
  We default to regular file so user can inspect the content to do
  further correction.

- rdev of INODE_ITEM
  If all above fails, and the INODE_ITEM has non-zero rdev, this inode
  must be either BLK or CHR. We default to BLK for this case.

- Error out if nothing matches
  This is to be 100% sure that we won't further corrupt the fs.

- Implement INODE_REF based imode lookup functionality
- Instead of defaulting to REG, error out if no imode can be found
  To avoid corrupting the fs.
