Subject: [PATCH] ext4: lock the xattr block before checksuming it

We must lock the xattr block before calculating or verifying the
checksum in order to avoid spurious checksum failures.

Hi,

I've been experiencing spurious ext4 checksum failures on 4.4 because
this patch is missing (which is quite painful with panic-on-error
enabled). This backport fixes the issue for me.
