Subject: [RFC PATCH v4 5/8] ext4: ext4_fc_track_inode() bug fix

This patch fixes a bug in ext4_fc_track_inode() where we should not
immediately return from ext4_fc_track_inode() if the inode is on fast
commit list. It is possible that the inode is on fast commit list and
then somebody calls ext4_fc_track_inode(). If we immediately return if
the inode is on fc list, we will let the caller modify the inode while
it is being committed.
