After the patch earlier in the series that created generic_ci_d_compare() and
switched f2fs to use it, f2fs_ci_compare() is only called when the filesystem is
actually searching a directory, not from ->d_compare(). So the names and
parent->d_inode are stable in it.

But, that also means the GFP_ATOMIC isn't needed, and f2fs_ci_compare() should
be made 'static'.
