There's a race between cachefiles_mark_object_inactive() and

 (1) cachefiles_cull() can't delete a backing file until the cache object
     is marked inactive, but as soon as that's the case it's fair game.

 (2) cachefiles_mark_object_inactive() marks the object as being inactive
     and *only then* reads the i_blocks on the backing inode - but
     cachefiles_cull() might've managed to delete it by this point.

Fix this by making sure cachefiles_mark_object_inactive() gets any data it
needs from the backing inode before deactivating the object.

Without this, the following oops may occur:
