vfs: call rcu_barrier after ->kill_sb()

In commit fa0d7e3de6 ("fs: icache RCU free inodes"), we use rcu free
inode instead of freeing the inode directly.  It causes a crash when we
rmmod immediately after we umount the volume[1].

So we need to call rcu_barrier after we kill_sb so that the inode is
freed before we do rmmod.  The idea is inspired by Aneesh Kumar.
rcu_barrier will wait for all callbacks to end before preceding.  The
original patch was done by Tao Ma, but synchronize_rcu() is not enough
here.
