Subject: [PATCH v2] fs: jfs: fix possible data races in txExit()

The functions txEnd() and txExit() can be concurrently executed in the
following call contexts:

Thread1: 
  jfs_lazycommit()
    txLazyCommit()
      txEnd()
Thread2:
  exit_jfs_fs()
    txExit()

In txEnd():
  struct tblock *tblk = tid_to_tblock(tid);
  // #define tid_to_tblock(tid) (&TxBlock[tid])

In txExit():
  vfree(TxBlock);
  TxBlock = NULL;

Data races can occur for the global variable TxBlock, and they 
can cause use-after-free bugs and null-pointer dereferences.
These data races were found by our concurrency fuzzer.

Thus call txExit() after the filesystem stops the threads 
that run jfs_lazycommit().
