Ted has written this so he'll have the definitive answer but I think the idea
of ESHUTDOWN is that if the filesystem was shutdown, we want ESHUTDOWN to
be recorded in the journal sb and not some other error. That's why there's
logic in __journal_abort_soft() making sure that ESHUTDOWN takes precedence
over any other error. Because it can happen that after EXT4_FLAGS_SHUTDOWN
flag is set, some other place records different error in journal
superblock before we get to jbd2_journal_abort() and record ESHUTDOWN...
