    LINUX: consolidate duplicate code in osi_TryEvictDentries
    The two stanzas for HAVE_DCACHE_LOCK are now functionally identical;
    remove the preprocessor conditionals and duplicate code.
    Minor functional change is incurrred for very old (before 2.6.38) Linux
    versions that have dcache_lock; we are now obtaining the d_lock as well.
    This is safe because d_lock is also quite old (pre-git, 2.6.12), and it
    is a spinlock that's only held for checking d_unhashed.  Therefore, it
    should have negligible performance impact.  It cannot cause deadlocks or
    violate locking order, because spinlocks can't be held across sleeps.
