iput() ends up calling ->evict() on new inode, which is not yet initialized
by owning fs.  So use destroy_inode() instead.

Add to sb->s_inodes list only after the inode has been inserted into the
hash.  The exact point at which the inode is added onto the sb list
shouldn't matter as long as it is done while the inode is in the I_NEW
state.

Check 22dc9a168272 (new primitive: discard_new_inode()) in vfs.git; IMO yours
should go on top of that and I would seriously consider going for just
alloc_inode() - to hell with new_inode_pseudo().  I_CREATING gives an easy
way for insert_inode5() to decide whether we need to move into ->i_sb_list...
