Actually, after thinking about this some more, I think I'm going to
just change the jbd2 events to simply print MAJOR(__entry->dev) and
MINOR(__entry->dev). Otherwise, the perf tool stops dies and stops
interpreting the trace points when it tries to interpret
"jbd2_dev_to_name(REC->dev)" in the print format.

So I'll just drop jbd2_dev_to_name() completely for the jbd2
tracepoints. It's not worth it.
