Btrfs: fix crash after inode cache writeback failure
If the writeback of an inode cache failed we were unnecessarilly attempting to release again the delalloc metadata that we previously reserved. However attempting to do this a second time triggers an assertion at drop_outstanding_extent() because we have no more outstanding extents for our inode cache's inode. If we were able to start writeback of the cache the reserved metadata space is released at btrfs_finished_ordered_io(), even if an error happens during writeback. So make sure we don't repeat the metadata space release if writeback started for our inode cache. This issue was trivial to reproduce by running the fstest btrfs/088 with "-o inode_cache", which triggered the assertion leading to a BUG() call and requiring a reboot in order to run the remaining fstests. Trace produced by btrfs/088: [255289.385904] BTRFS: assertion failed: BTRFS_I(inode)->outstanding_extents >= num_extents, file: fs/btrfs/extent-tree.c, line: 5276 [255289.388094] ------------[ cut here ]------------ [255289.389184] kernel BUG at fs/btrfs/ctree.h:4057!
