Commit "3a19fb7 libxfs: stop caching inode structures"
introduced a use after free.

libxfs_iput() already does the check for ip->i_itemp, and a
kmem_zone_free() if it's present, and then frees the ip pointer.
Re-checking ip->i_itemp after the libxfs_iput call will access
the freed ip pointer, as will setting ip_>i_itemp to NULL.

Simply remove the offending code to fix this up.

V2: Make it prettier based on Dave's comments.
