Iterate over sb->s_inodes instead of sb->s_files in add_dquot_ref.
This reduces list search and lock hold time aswell as getting rid of
one of the few uses of file_list_lock which Ingo identified as a
scalability problem.

Previously we called dq_op->initialize for every inode handing of
a writeable file that wasn't initialized before.  Now we're calling
it for every inode that has a non-zero i_writecount, aka a writeable
file descriptor refering to it.

Thanks a lot to Jan Kara for running this patch through his quota
test harness.

Note:  this is ontop of '[PATCH] move remove_dquot_ref to dqout.c'
which I sent out yesterday.
