As comment says, we don't need to call f2fs_lock_op in write_inode to prevent
from producing dirty node pages all the time.
That happens only when there is not enough free sections and we can avoid that
by calling balance_fs in prior to that.

f2fs_balance_fs was moved here intentionally by Jin Xu in commit 92c4342fb72a
("f2fs: avoid writing inode redundantly when creating a file") to avoid
redundantly inode page submitting, I was confused since I didn't know all
history here. So, should we change the position of f2fs_balance_fs?

Thanks,

Oh, I remained that order. Fixed and merged.
