jfs: fix a couple races
commit 73aaa22d5ffb2630456bac2f9a4ed9b81d0d7271 upstream. This patch fixes races uncovered by xfstests testcase 068. One race is the result of jfs_sync() trying to write a sync point to the journal after it has been frozen (or possibly in the process). Since freezing sync's the journal, there is no need to write a sync point so we simply want to return. The second involves jfs_write_inode() being called on a deleted inode. It calls jfs_flush_journal which is held up by the jfs_commit thread doing the final iput on the same deleted inode, which itself is waiting for the I_SYNC flag to be cleared. jfs_write_inode need not do anything when i_nlink is zero, which is the easy fix.
