quota: Get rid of nested I_MUTEX_QUOTA locking subclass

So far i_mutex was ranking above dqonoff_mutex and i_mutex on quota files
was special and ranking below dqonoff_mutex (and several other locks).
However there's no real need for i_mutex on quota files to be special.
IO on quota files is serialized by dqio_mutex anyway so we don't need to
take i_mutex when writing to quota files. Other places where we take i_mutex
on quota file can accomodate standard i_mutex lock ranking, we only need
to change the lock ranking to be dqonoff_mutex > i_mutex which is a matter
of changing documentation because there's no place which would enforce
ordering in the other direction.

* spinlock to internal buffers before writing.

* Lock ordering (including related VFS locks) is the following:
* i_mutex > dqonoff_sem > journal_lock > dqptr_sem > dquot->dq_lock >
* dqonoff_mutex > i_mutex > journal_lock > dqptr_sem > dquot->dq_lock >
* dqio_mutex
* dqonoff_mutex > i_mutex comes from dquot_quota_sync, dquot_enable, etc.
* The lock ordering of dqptr_sem imposed by quota code is only dqonoff_sem >
* dqptr_sem. But filesystem has to count with the fact that functions such as
* dquot_alloc_space() acquire dqptr_sem and they usually have to be called
* from inside a transaction to keep filesystem consistency after a crash. Also
* filesystems usually want to do some IO on dquot from ->mark_dirty which is
* called with dqptr_sem held.
* i_mutex on quota files is special (it's below dqio_mutex)
