Btrfs: Only let very young transactions grow during commit

Commits are fairly expensive, and so btrfs has code to sit around for a while
during the commit and let new writers come in.

But, while we're sitting there, new delayed refs might be added, and those
can be expensive to process as well.  Unless the transaction is very very
young, it makes sense to go ahead and let the commit finish without hanging

The commit grow loop isn't as important as it used to be, the fsync logging
code handles most performance critical syncs now.
