Subject: [PATCH] ext4: do not mark superblock as dirty unnecessarily

From: Artem Bityutskiy <artem.bityutskiy@...ux.intel.com>

Commit a0375156ca1041574b5d47cc7e32f10b891151b0 cleaned up superblock dirtying
handling. Although the commit message is vague, this patch seems to do what was
intended: if we have the journal, then we update the superblock through the
journal rather than doing this directly.
