The BD_FREEZE_OP flag in the block_device already prevents multiple
freezes for a singe block device, so there is no need for this
additional check and the get_super_without_lock helper.

And with that flag bd_mount_sem is also obsolete for preventing the
multiple freeze operations.  We still need investigate what
synchronization we need vs unmount which also takes bd_mount_sem without
every having document what it exactly protects.
