Subject: [PATCH v2] ext4, jbd2: ensure panic by fix a race between jbd2 abort and ext4 error handlers

In the ext4 filesystem with errors=panic, if one process is recording
errno in the superblock when invoking jbd2_journal_abort() due to some
error cases, it could be raced by another __ext4_abort() which is
setting the SB_RDONLY flag but missing panic because errno has not been
recorded.

jbd2_journal_commit_transaction()
 jbd2_journal_abort()
  journal->j_flags |= JBD2_ABORT;
  jbd2_journal_update_sb_errno()
                                    | ext4_journal_check_start()
                                    |  __ext4_abort()
                                    |   sb->s_flags |= SB_RDONLY;
                                    |   if (!JBD2_REC_ERR)
                                    |        return;
  journal->j_flags |= JBD2_REC_ERR;

Finally, it will no longer trigger panic because the filesystem has
already been set read-only. Fix this by introduce j_abort_mutex to make
sure journal abort is completed before panic, and remove JBD2_REC_ERR
flag.
