Subject: ext4: new mount API conversion

The following patch converts the ext4 to use the new mount API

The series can be applied on top of the current mainline tree and the work
is based on the patches from David Howells (thank you David). It was built
and tested with xfstests and custom script to check all ext4 mount options
and some valid/invalid combinations.

This series also requires a small fix to the parsing infrastructure from
David Howells which has not been adopted yet - "vfs: Handle

I've tried to avoid big unrelated changes to the original ext4_fill_super()
and ext4_remount, though it could definitelly use some cleanup. This can
be done after the conversion with a separate patch set.
