Subject: [PATCH 4.4 68/70] ext4: dont perform block validity checks on the journal inode

From: Theodore Ts'o <tytso@....edu>

commit 0a944e8a6c66ca04c7afbaa17e22bf208a8b37f0 upstream.

Since the journal inode is already checked when we added it to the
block validity's system zone, if we check it again, we'll just trigger
a failure.

This was causing failures like this:

[   53.897001] EXT4-fs error (device sda): ext4_find_extent:909: inode
#8: comm jbd2/sda-8: pblk 121667583 bad header/extent: invalid extent entries - magic f30a, entries 8, max 340(340), depth 0(0)
[   53.931430] jbd2_journal_bmap: journal block not found at offset 49 on sda-8
[   53.938480] Aborting journal on device sda-8.

... but only if the system was under enough memory pressure that
logical->physical mapping for the journal inode gets pushed out of the
extent cache.  (This is why it wasn't noticed earlier.)
