Subject: [RESEND PATCH v2] ext4: fix memory leak in ext4_fill_super

static int kthread(void *_create) will return -ENOMEM
or -EINTR in case of internal failure or
kthread_stop() call happens before threadfn call.

To prevent fancy error checking and make code
more straightforward we moved all cleanup code out
of kmmpd threadfn.

Also, dropped struct mmpd_data at all. Now struct super_block
is a threadfn data and struct buffer_head embedded into
struct ext4_sb_info.
