btrfs: fix log context list corruption after rename whiteout error
During a rename whiteout, if btrfs_whiteout_for_rename() returns an error we can end up returning from btrfs_rename() with the log context object still in the root's log context list - this happens if 'sync_log' was set to true before we called btrfs_whiteout_for_rename() and it is dangerous because we end up with a corrupt linked list (root->log_ctxs) as the log context object was allocated on the stack. After btrfs_rename() returns, any task that is running btrfs_sync_log() concurrently can end up crashing because that linked list is traversed by btrfs_sync_log() (through btrfs_remove_all_log_ctxs()). That results in the same issue that commit e6c617102c7e4 ("Btrfs: fix log context list corruption after rename exchange operation") fixed.
