Subject: ext4: avoid drop reference to twice

The reference to has been dropped in ext4_mark_iloc_dirty.
However, the reference is dropped again if error occurs during
ext4_handle_dirty_metadata, which may result in use-after-free bugs.

Fixes: fb265c9cb49e("ext4: add ext4_sb_bread() to disambiguate ENOMEM
