vfs: skip I_CLEAR state inodes

clear_inode() will switch inode state from I_FREEING to I_CLEAR, and do so
_outside_ of inode_lock.  So any I_FREEING testing is incomplete without a
coupled testing of I_CLEAR.

So add I_CLEAR tests to drop_pagecache_sb(), generic_sync_sb_inodes() and
add_dquot_ref().

Masayoshi MIZUMA discovered the bug in drop_pagecache_sb() and Jan Kara
reminds fixing the other two cases.

Masayoshi MIZUMA has a nice panic flow:

=====================================================================
            [process A]               |        [process B]
 |                                    |
 |    prune_icache()                  | drop_pagecache()
 |      spin_lock(&inode_lock)        |   drop_pagecache_sb()
 |      inode->i_state |= I_FREEING;  |       |
 |      spin_unlock(&inode_lock)      |       V
 |          |                         |     spin_lock(&inode_lock)
 |          V                         |         |
 |      dispose_list()                |         |
 |        list_del()                  |         |
 |        clear_inode()               |         |
 |          inode->i_state = I_CLEAR  |         |
 |            |                       |         V
 |            |                       |      if (inode->i_state & (I_FREEING|I_WILL_FREE))
 |            |                       |              continue;           <==== NOT MATCH
 |            |                       |
 |            |                       | (DANGER from here on! Accessing disposing inode!)
 |            |                       |
 |            |                       |      __iget()
 |            |                       |        list_move() <===== PANIC on poisoned list !!
