Because quota inodes don't have a parent and doing filestreams stuff
on quota inodes causes all sorts on problems.
I forgot to split that patch out like you asked last time. Will
now be patch 2, because without this fix we get extra references on
the quota inodes that never get removed and hence busy inodes
after unmount problems....

That's because it is moved in the xfs_close removal patch later in
my series. I'll move it.

And like I said last time: I don't disagree with you.
However: I'm not going to hold back the filestreams code for this.
Doing janitorial work like this is a complete and utter waste of
my time and it does nothing to improve the code right now. I'll
happily accept patches that move this code to lib/ if someone goes
and does it before I find the cycles to be able to do it.
