The allocated inode cache is supposed to be added to its memcg list_lru
which should be allocated as well in advance. That can be done by
kmem_cache_alloc_lru() which allocates object and list_lru. The file
systems is main user of it. So introduce alloc_inode_sb() to allocate
file system specific inodes and set up the inode reclaim context
properly. The file system is supposed to use alloc_inode_sb() to
allocate inodes. In the later patches, we will convert all users to the
new API.

 At some point that will become mandatory.
