btrfs: fix log context list corruption after rename whiteout error

commit 236ebc20d9afc5e9ff52f3cf3f365a91583aac10 upstream.

During a rename whiteout, if btrfs_whiteout_for_rename() returns an error
we can end up returning from btrfs_rename() with the log context object
still in the root's log context list - this happens if 'sync_log' was
set to true before we called btrfs_whiteout_for_rename() and it is
dangerous because we end up with a corrupt linked list (root->log_ctxs)
as the log context object was allocated on the stack.

After btrfs_rename() returns, any task that is running btrfs_sync_log()
concurrently can end up crashing because that linked list is traversed by
btrfs_sync_log() (through btrfs_remove_all_log_ctxs()). That results in
the same issue that commit e6c61710 ("Btrfs: fix log context list
corruption after rename exchange operation") fixed.

Fixes: d4682ba0 ("Btrfs: sync log after logging new name")
