Subject: [PATCH 2/2] btrfs: add lockdep annotation for btrfs_log_inode

Add a proper subclass to get rid of the following lockdep

 [ INFO: possible recursive locking detected ]
 4.9.0+ #279 Not tainted
 vim/4801 is trying to acquire lock:
  (&ei->log_mutex){+.+...}, at: [<000003ff82057592>]
btrfs_log_inode+0x182/0xfa8 [btrfs]

  (&ei->log_mutex){+.+...}, at: [<000003ff82057592>]
btrfs_log_inode+0x182/0xfa8 [btrfs]

  Possible unsafe locking scenario:

                                 *** DEADLOCK ***
  May be due to missing lock nesting notation
 3 locks held by vim/4801:
  #0:  (&sb->s_type->i_mutex_key#15){+.+.+.}, at: [<000003ff81fc274c>]
