reiserfs: properly honor read-only devices
commit 3f8b5ee33293d43ca360771b535dfae8c57259dc upstream. The reiserfs journal behaves inconsistently when determining whether to allow a mount of a read-only device. This is due to the use of the continue_replay variable to short circuit the journal scanning. If it's set, it's assumed that there are transactions to replay, but there may not be. If it's unset, it's assumed that there aren't any, and that may not be the case either. I've observed two failure cases: 1) Where a clean file system on a read-only device refuses to mount 2) Where a clean file system on a read-only device passes the optimization and then tries writing the journal header to update the latest mount id. The former is easily observable by using a freshly created file system on a read-only loopback device. This patch moves the check into journal_read_transaction, where it can bail out before it's about to replay a transaction. That way it can go through and skip transactions where appropriate, yet still refuse to mount a file system with outstanding transactions.
