jbd2: fix race between jbd2_journal_remove_checkpoint and ->j_commit_callback

commit 794446c6946513c684d448205fbd76fa35f38b72 upstream.

The following race is possible:

[kjournald2]                              other_task
jbd2_journal_commit_transaction()
  j_state = T_FINISHED;
  spin_unlock(&journal->j_list_lock);
                                         ->jbd2_journal_remove_checkpoint()
   ->jbd2_journal_free_transaction();
     ->kmem_cache_free(transaction)
  ->j_commit_callback(journal, transaction);
    -> USE_AFTER_FREE

In order to demonstrace this issue one should mount ext4 with mount -o
discard option on SSD disk.  This makes callback longer and race
window becomes wider.

In order to fix this we should mark transaction as finished only after
callbacks have completed
