Vegard Nossum reported a bug which accesses freed memory (found via
kmemcheck).  When journal has been aborted, ext4_put_super() calls
ext4_abort() after freeing the journal_t object, and then ext4_abort()
accesses it.  This patch fix it.

Many thanks, Kawai-san, it looks good.  I'll get this queued for
mainline.
