An NULL-pointer dereference happens in cachefiles_mark_object_inactive()
when it tries to read i_blocks so that it can tell the cachefilesd daemon
how much space it's making available.

The problem is that cachefiles_drop_object() calls
cachefiles_mark_object_inactive() after calling cachefiles_delete_object()
because the object being marked active staves off attempts to (re-)use the
file at that filename until after it has been deleted.  This means that
d_inode is NULL by the time we come to try to access it.

To fix the problem, have the caller of cachefiles_mark_object_inactive()
supply the number of blocks freed up.

Without this, the following oops may occur:
