ext4: fix journal callback list traversal

commit 5d3ee20855e28169d711b394857ee608a5023094 upstream.

It is incorrect to use list_for_each_entry_safe() for journal callback
traversial because ->next may be removed by other task:
->ext4_mb_free_metadata()
  ->ext4_mb_free_metadata()
    ->ext4_journal_callback_del()

This results in the following issue:

WARNING: at lib/list_debug.c:62 __list_del_entry+0x1c0/0x250()

This patch fix the issue as follows:
- ext4_journal_commit_callback() make list truly traversial safe
  simply by always starting from list_head
- fix race between two ext4_journal_callback_del() and
  ext4_journal_callback_try_del()
