I think we can solve this without using using either a spinlock or a
mutex, and it's a smaller and simpler patch as a result.  (This is the
-v2 version of this patch, which removes an unused label compared to
the earlier version.)

Subject: [PATCH] ext4: fix possible UAF when remounting r/o a mmp-protected file system

After commit 618f003199c6 ("ext4: fix memory leak in
ext4_fill_super"), after the file system is remounted read-only, there
is a race where the kmmpd thread can exit, causing sbi->s_mmp_tsk to
point at freed memory, which the call to ext4_stop_mmpd() can trip
over.

Fix this by only allowing kmmpd() to exit when it is stopped via
ext4_stop_mmpd().
