in shmem_get_inode():
new_inode();
  new_inode_pseudo();
    alloc_inode();
      ops->alloc_inode(); -> shmem_alloc_inode()
        kmem_cache_alloc();

memset(info, 0, (char *)inode - (char *)info);

So use kmem_cache_zalloc() in shmem_alloc_inode(),
and remove the memset in shmem_get_inode().

Looks correct, but now we clear also the inode part which seems to be handled by 
alloc_inode() well enough. So, unsure. btrfs and ext4 variants don't use kzalloc 
neither. It's also more obvious with the current way that the info is cleared. Hmm?
