GFS2: quota allows exceeding hard limit

Immediately after being synced to disk, cached quotas are zeroed out and a
subsequent access of the cached quotas results in incorrect zero values. This
meant that gfs2 assumed the actual usage to be the zero (or near-zero) usage
values it found in the cached quotas and comparison against warn/limits never
triggered a quota violation.

This patch adds a new flag QDF_REFRESH that is set after a sync so that the
cached quotas are forcefully refreshed from disk on a subsequent access on
seeing this flag set.
