Btrfs has btrfs_end_transaction_throttle() which could try to commit
transaction when needed.

However under most cases btrfs_end_transaction_throttle() won't really
commit transaction, due to the hard timing requirement.

Now introduce a new error injection point, btrfs_need_trans_pressure(),
to allow btrfs_should_end_transaction() to return 1 and
btrfs_end_transaction_throttle() to fallback to
btrfs_commit_transaction().

With such more aggressive transaction commit, we can dig deeper into
cases like snapshot drop.
Now each reference drop of btrfs_drop_snapshot() will lead to a
transaction commit, allowing dm-logwrites to catch more details, other
than one big transaction dropping everything.
