Btrfs: fix list transaction->pending_ordered corruption

When we call btrfs_commit_transaction(), we splice the list "ordered"
of our transaction handle into the transaction's "pending_ordered"
list, but we don't re-initialize the "ordered" list of our transaction
handle, this means it still points to the same elements it used to
before the splice. Then we check if the current transaction's state is
>= TRANS_STATE_COMMIT_START and if it is we end up calling
btrfs_end_transaction() which simply splices again the "ordered" list
of our handle into the transaction's "pending_ordered" list, leaving
multiple pointers to the same ordered extents which results in list
corruption when we are iterating, removing and freeing ordered extents
at btrfs_wait_pending_ordered(), resulting in access to dangling
pointers / use-after-free issues.
Similarly, btrfs_end_transaction() can end up in some cases calling
btrfs_commit_transaction(), and both did a list splice of the transaction
handle's "ordered" list into the transaction's "pending_ordered" without
re-initializing the handle's "ordered" list, resulting in exactly the
same problem.

This produces the following warning on a kernel with linked list
debugging enabled:

On a non-debug kernel this leads to invalid memory accesses, causing a
crash. Fix this by using list_splice_init() instead of list_splice() in
btrfs_commit_transaction() and btrfs_end_transaction().
