Protect xfs_sync_worker by using the s_umount semaphore at the read level to
provide exclusion with unmount while work is progressing.

-                       xfs_log_force(mp, 0);
+       if (down_read_trylock(&mp->m_super->s_umount)) {

Okay, the s_umount has down_write() performed upon it when it is
created and does not do a up_write until the filesystem mount is

This test is just like the one in grab_super_passive(). The if
statements have to be separated to know to do the corresponding

+               if (!(mp->m_flags&  XFS_MOUNT_RDONLY)) {
+               up_read(&mp->m_super->s_umount);

Looks good.
