splice: fix deadlock in splicing to file



There's a possible deadlock in generic_file_splice_write(),
splice_from_pipe() and ocfs2_file_splice_write():

 - task A calls generic_file_splice_write()
 - this calls inode_double_lock(), which locks i_mutex on both
   pipe->inode and target inode
 - ordering depends on inode pointers, can happen that pipe->inode is
   locked first
 - __splice_from_pipe() needs more data, calls pipe_wait()
 - this releases lock on pipe->inode, goes to interruptible sleep
 - task B calls generic_file_splice_write(), similarly to the first
 - this locks pipe->inode, then tries to lock inode, but that is
   already held by task A
 - task A is interrupted, it tries to lock pipe->inode, but fails, as
   it is already held by task B
 - ABBA deadlock

Fix this by explicitly ordering locks: the outer lock must be on
target inode and the inner lock (which is later unlocked and relocked)
must be on pipe->inode.  This is OK, pipe inodes and target inodes
form two nonoverlapping sets, generic_file_splice_write() and friends
are not called with a target which is a pipe.
