Add a new field d_nchildren to struct dentry to track the number of
children in a directory.

Theoretically, we could use reference count (d_lockref.count) as a
proxy for the number of children. Normally the reference count should
be quite close to the number of children. However, when the directory
dentry is heavily contended, the reference count can differ from the
number of children by quite a bit.

The d_nchildren field is updated only when d_lock has already been held,
so the performance cost of this tracking should be negligible.
