Subject: [PATCH 5/5] ext3: abort ext3 if the journal has aborted

Subject: [PATCH 5/5] ext3: abort ext3 if the journal has aborted

If the journal has aborted due to a checkpointing failure, we
have to keep the contents of the journal space.  ext3_put_super()
detects the journal abort, then it invokes ext3_abort() to make
the filesystem read only and keep needs_recovery flag.
