reiserfs: fix dependency inversion between inode and reiserfs mutexes

The reiserfs mutex already depends on the inode mutex, so we can't lock
the inode mutex in reiserfs_unpack() without using the safe locking API,
because reiserfs_unpack() is always called with the reiserfs mutex locked.

This fixes:

  =======================================================
  [ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
  2.6.35c #13
  -------------------------------------------------------
  lilo/1606 is trying to acquire lock:
   (&sb->s_type->i_mutex_key#8){+.+.+.}, at: [<d0329450>] reiserfs_unpack+0x60/0x110 [reiserfs]

  but task is already holding lock:
   (&REISERFS_SB(s)->lock){+.+.+.}, at: [<d032a268>] reiserfs_write_lock+0x28/0x40 [reiserfs]

  which lock already depends on the new lock.

  the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:
