Subject: [PATCH 02/12] ext4: Remove redundant sb checksum recomputation

Superblock is written out either through ext4_commit_super() or through
ext4_handle_dirty_super(). In both cases we recompute the checksum so it
is not necessary to recompute it after updating superblock free inodes &
blocks counters.
