Besides the move you also change xfs_quiesce_fs to call xfs_sync instead
of xfs_syncsub.  This does and additional XFS_QM_DQSYNC and an
xfs_filestream_flush.  The latter doesn't have any effect because we
don't have SYNC_IOWAIT set here, but the former means we are now doing
a synchronous quota sync.  I don't think that can be harmful, but I'd be
better left for a separate and properly documented patch.

Otherwise this looks good to me.
