    Btrfs: preserve commit_root for async caching · 276e680d

    The async block group caching code uses the commit_root pointer
    to get a stable version of the extent allocation tree for scanning.
    This copy of the tree root isn't going to change and it significantly
    reduces the complexity of the scanning code.
    
    During a commit, we have a loop where we update the extent allocation
    tree root.  We need to loop because updating the root pointer in
    the tree of tree roots may allocate blocks which may change the
    extent allocation tree.
    
    Right now the commit_root pointer is changed inside this loop.  It
    is more correct to change the commit_root pointer only after all the
    looping is done.
