[PATCH] xfs: unregister inode shrinker before freeing filesystem struct

Subject: [PATCH] xfs: unregister inode shrinker before freeing filesystem structures

Currently we don't remove the XFS mount from the shrinker list until late in
the unmount path. By this time, we have already torn down the internals of the
filesystem (e.g. the per-ag structures), and hence if the shrinker is executed
between the teardown and the unregistering, the shrinker will get NULL per-ag
structure pointers and panic trying to dereference them.

Fix this by removingthe xfs mount from the shrinker list before tearing down
it's internal structures.
