yup, you're right. so, here is an implementation of this.
tested on UP/SMP by dbench/fsx. Stephen, Andrew, could you
review the patch and give it a run?

thanks, Alex


fix against credits leak in journal_release_buffer()

The idea is to charge a buffer in journal_dirty_metadata(),
not in journal_get_*_access()). Each buffer has flag call
journal_dirty_metadata() sets on the buffer.
