commit 18e9e5104fcd9a973ffe3eed3816c87f2a1b6cd2

    Introduce freeze_super and thaw_super for the fsfreeze ioctl
    Currently the way we do freezing is by passing sb>s_bdev to freeze_bdev and 
    letting it do all the work.  But freezing is more of an fs thing, and 
    really have much to do with the bdev at all, all the work gets done with the
    super.  In btrfs we do not populate s_bdev, since we can have multiple 
    for one fs and setting s_bdev makes removing devices from a pool kind of 
    This means that freezing a btrfs filesystem fails, which causes us to 
    with things like tux-on-ice which use the fsfreeze mechanism.  So instead of
    populating sb->s_bdev with a random bdev in our pool, I've broken the 
actual fs
    freezing stuff into freeze_super and thaw_super.  These just take the
    super_block that we're freezing and does the appropriate work.  It's 
    just copy and pasted from freeze_bdev.  I've then converted freeze_bdev 
over to
    use the new super helpers.  I've tested this with ext4 and btrfs and 
    everything continues to work the same as before.
    The only new gotcha is multiple calls to the fsfreeze ioctl will return 
    the fs is already frozen.  I thought this was a better solution than adding 
    freeze counter to the super_block, but if everybody hates this idea I'm 
open to
    suggestions.  Thanks,

IOWs, if you freeze the superblock via xfs_freeze or fsfreeze, you cannot nest 
freeze requests - you'll get EBUSY on teh second attempt to freeze the 

lvcreate must be doing a freeze from the block device, so it's failing with 
EBUSY because the superblock on the block device is already frozen...
