Xen doesn't report that barriers are not supported until buffer I/O is
reported as completed, instead of when the buffer I/O is submitted.
Add a check and a fallback codepath to journal_wait_on_commit_record()
to detect this case, so that attempts to mount ext4 filesystems on
LVM/devicemapper devices on Xen guests don't blow up with an "Aborting
journal on device XXX"; "Remounting filesystem read-only" error.

Thanks to Andreas Sundstrom for reporting this issue.
