xfs: make log devices with write back caches work



There's no reason not to support cache flushing on external log devices.
The only thing this really requires is flushing the data device first
both in fsync and log commits.  A side effect is that we also have to
remove the barrier write test during mount, which has been superflous
since the new FLUSH+FUA code anyway.  Also use the chance to flush the
RT subvolume write cache before the fsync commit, which is required
for correct semantics.
