xfs: buffer type changes in xfs_da_root_join

From: Dave Chinner <dchinner@xxxxxxxxxx>

When a root join occurs, a node format tree can be turne dback into
a leaf format tree by copying the last remaining leaf block into the
root block. At this point, the root block changes from a xfs_da_node
to a xfs_attr_leaf, and the magic number changes. However,
xfs_da_root_join treats this block as a xfs_da_node and sets the
verifier up as such. This is the wrong verifier when a leaf block
is moved into the root.

Fix this by copying the verifier from the buffer being copied into
the root block. This ensures that the leaf verifier is moved with
the leaf data, and avoids verifier failures.

I posted this as separate patch rather than going back an
integrating it and then rebasing all the other patches on top it
afterwards. Simpler, faster, and the buf being fixed is more obvious
and easier to review, too. Found from debugging occassional 070 and
117 failures when run in a tight loop for a couple of hours..
