commit c4a6bf7f6cc7eb4cce120fb7eb1e1fb8b2d65e09 upstream.

When XFS creates an O_TMPFILE file, the inode is created with nlink = 1,
put on the unlinked list, and then the VFS sets nlink = 0 in d_tmpfile.
If we crash before anything logs the inode (it's dirty incore but the
vfs doesn't tell us it's dirty so we never log that change), the iunlink
processing part of recovery will then explode with a pile of:

XFS: Assertion failed: VFS_I(ip)->i_nlink == 0, file:
fs/xfs/xfs_log_recover.c, line: 5072

Worse yet, since nlink is nonzero, the inodes also don't get cleaned up
and they just leak until the next xfs_repair run.

Therefore, change xfs_iunlink to require that inodes being put on the
unlinked list have nlink == 0, change the tmpfile callers to instantiate
nodes that way, and set the nlink to 1 just prior to calling d_tmpfile.
Fix the comment for xfs_iunlink while we're at it.
