Subject: [PATCH -next] ext4: Fix remount with 'abort' option isn't effective

We test remount with 'abort' option as follows:
[root@...alhost home]# mount  /dev/sda test
[root@...alhost home]# mount | grep test
/dev/sda on /home/test type ext4 (rw,relatime)
[root@...alhost home]# mount -o remount,abort test
[root@...alhost home]# mount | grep test
/dev/sda on /home/test type ext4 (rw,relatime)

Obviously, remount 'abort' option isn't effective.
After 6e47a3cc68fc commit we process abort option with 'ctx_set_mount_flags':
static inline void ctx_set_mount_flags(struct ext4_fs_context *ctx, int flag)
	ctx->mask_s_mount_flags |= flag;
	ctx->vals_s_mount_flags |= flag;

But we test 'abort' option with 'ext4_test_mount_flag':
static inline int ext4_test_mount_flag(struct super_block *sb, int bit)
        return test_bit(bit, &EXT4_SB(sb)->s_mount_flags);

To solve this issue, pass (1 <<  EXT4_MF_FS_ABORTED) to 'ctx_set_mount_flags'.
