I've always wondered why ext3_journal_{start,stop} took an inode as
a parameter instead of the superblock.  In some cases (although
nowhere currently in the ext3 code) it is desirable to get a journal
handle without necessarily having an inode related to that operation.

Nowhere in the ext3_journal_{start,stop} do we use the inode for
anything other than getting the superblock.

Cheers, Andreas
