Subject: [PATCH 3/4] ext4: cleanup data integrity sync fo nonjournal mode

There are several rules we must follows during data integrity
1) barrier MUST being sent if barrier_opt is enabled (and must not otherwise)
2) If we can guarantee that barrier will be sent for us,
   we can skip explicit barrier.

Change log:
 - Fix needs_barrier var initialization according to rule (1)
 - Avoid barriers if barrier_opt was not enabled for non-journal mode
   according to rule (1)
 - Style cleanup flush optimization according to rule (2)
