Subject: [PATCH] jbd: JBD slab allocation cleanups

JBD: JBD slab allocation cleanups

From: Mingming Cao <cmm@...ibm.com>

JBD: Replace slab allocations with page allocations

JBD allocate memory for committed_data and frozen_data from slab. However
JBD should not pass slab pages down to the block layer. Use page allocator pages instead. This will also prepare JBD for the large blocksize patchset.
