I have to admit that my code is not correct because function should
return 'most recent uncommitted transaction', but I do not get your
idea. journal->j_commit_request >= jorunal->j_committing_transaction
and journal->j_commit_request >= journal->j_commit_sequence

So it is reasonable to define function like follows:

static inline tid_t  jbd2_get_latest_transaction(journal_t journal)
{
   tid_t tid;

   read_lock(&journal->j_state_lock);
   tid = journal->j_commit_request;
   if (journal->j_running_transaction)
           tid = journal->j_running_transaction->t_tid;
   read_unlock(&journal->j_state_lock);
   return tid;
}
