Btrfs: fix deadlock in btrfs_commit_transaction



We calculate timeout (either 1 or MAX_SCHEDULE_TIMEOUT) based on whether
num_writers > 1 or should_grow at the top of the loop.  Then, much much
later, we wait for that timeout if either num_writers or should_grow is
true.  However, it's possible for a racing process (calling
btrfs_end_transaction()) to decrement num_writers such that we wait
forever instead of for 1.

Fix this by deciding how long to wait when we wait.  Include a smp_mb()
before checking if the waitqueue is active to ensure the num_writers
is visible.
