Subject: [PATCH v2 2/4] ext4: Convert last user of ext4_mark_super_dirty() to ext4_handle_dirty_super()

From: Jan Kara <jack@...e.cz>

The last user of ext4_mark_super_dirty() in ext4_file_open() is so rare it
can well be modifying the superblock properly by journalling the change.
Change it and get rid of ext4_mark_super_dirty() as it's not needed anymore.

Artem: small amensdments.
Artem: tested using xfstests for both journalled and non-journalled ext4.
