Subject: [PATCH v2] fs: jfs: fix a possible data race in txBegin()

The functions txBegin() and txLazyCommit() can be concurrently executed
in the following call contexts:

Thread1:
  jfs_write_inode()
    jfs_commit_inode()
      txBegin()

Thread2:
  jfs_lazycommit()
    txLazyCommit()

In txBegin():
  tblk->next = tblk->last = tblk->xflag = tblk->flag = tblk->lsn = 0;

In txLazyCommit():
  spin_lock_irq(&log->gclock);
  ...
  tblk->flag |= tblkGC_COMMITTED;
  ...
  spin_unlock_irq(&log->gclock);

A data race can occur for the data structure member "flag". 
This data race was found by our concurrency fuzzer.

Thus use the spin lock "gclock" for the resetting of five 
data structure members in this function implementation.
