Dmitri Monakho - March 27, 2013, 9:22 a.m.
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 result in following issue:

WARNING: at lib/list_debug.c:62 __list_del_entry+0x1c0/0x250()
Hardware name:
list_del corruption. prev->next should be ffff88019a4ec198, but was 6b6b6b6b6b6b6b6b

This patch fix the issue like 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()

Changes since V1:
 Indention fixes accordion to Jan's request
