ext4: fix data=journal fast mount/umount hang

commit 2b405bfa84063bfa35621d2d6879f52693c614b0 upstream.

In data=journal mode, if we unmount the file system before a
transaction has a chance to complete, when the journal inode is being
evicted, we can end up calling into jbd2_log_wait_commit() for the
last transaction, after the journalling machinery has been shut down.

Arguably we should adjust ext4_should_journal_data() to return FALSE
for the journal inode, but the only place it matters is
ext4_evict_inode(), and so to save a bit of CPU time, and to make the
patch much more obviously correct by inspection(tm), we'll fix it by
explicitly not trying to waiting for a journal commit when we are
evicting the journal inode, since it's guaranteed to never succeed in
this case.

This can be easily replicated via:

     mount -t ext4 -o data=journal /dev/vdb /vdb ; umount /vdb
