Subject: [PATCH 2/2] jbd2: Fix memory leak in jbd2_journal_stop()

Currently in the case that we've got to the jbd2_journal_stop() with
already sopped handle we might leak the memory previously allocated
for the reserved handle because we only free the handle structure
leaving handle->h_rsv_handle intact.

Fix it by freeing the handle->h_rsv_handle structure in case we're
dealing with already stopped handle in jbd2_journal_stop().
