Subject: [PATCH] e2fsck: try write_primary_superblock() again when it failed

Function write_primary_superblock() has two ways to flush
superblock, byte-by-byte as default. It may use
io_channel_write_byte() many times. If some errors occur
during these funcs, the superblock may become inconsistent
and produce checksum error.

Try write_primary_superblock() with whole-block way again
when it failed on byte-by-byte way.
