Subject: [PATCH] jbd2: Fix checkpoint list cleanup

Unlike comments and expectation of callers journal_clean_one_cp_list()
returned 1 not only if it freed the transaction but also if it freed
some buffers in the transaction. That could make
__jbd2_journal_clean_checkpoint_list() skip processing
t_checkpoint_io_list and continue with processing the next transaction.
This is mostly a cosmetic issue since the only result is we can
sometimes free less memory than we could. But it's still worth fixing.
Fix journal_clean_one_cp_list() to return 1 only if the transaction was
really freed.

Fixes: 50849db32a9f529235a84bcc84a6b8e631b1d0ec
