Yup, all these use anon_inode_getfile() so it all points to the fact that
for some reason we freed anon_inode_inode. But I don't see where the
problem is. Can you maybe make 'anon_inode_inode' external to
fs/anon_inodes.c and dump stack for all iput() calls to anon_inode_inode?
There must be some suckers which don't belong there...
