Btrfs: fix removal logic of the tree mod log that leads to use-after-free issues

When a tree mod log user no longer needs to use the tree it calls
btrfs_put_tree_mod_seq() to remove itself from the list of users and
delete all no longer used elements of the tree's red black tree, which
should be all elements with a sequence number less then our equals to
the caller's sequence number. However the logic is broken because it
can delete and free elements from the red black tree that have a
sequence number greater then the caller's sequence number:

1) At a point in time we have sequence numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4 in the
   tree mod log;

2) The task which got assigned the sequence number 1 calls

3) Sequence number 1 is deleted from the list of sequence numbers;

4) The current minimum sequence number is computed to be the sequence
   number 2;

5) A task using sequence number 2 is at tree_mod_log_rewind() and gets
   a pointer to one of its elements from the red black tree through
   a call to tree_mod_log_search();

6) The task with sequence number 1 iterates the red black tree of tree
   modification elements and deletes (and frees) all elements with a
   sequence number less then or equals to 2 (the computed minimum sequence
   number) - it ends up only leaving elements with sequence numbers of 3
   and 4;

7) The task with sequence number 2 now uses the pointer to its element,
   already freed by the other task, at __tree_mod_log_rewind(), resulting
   in a use-after-free issue. When CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC=y it produces
   a trace like the following:

Fix this by making btrfs_put_tree_mod_seq() skip deletion of elements that
have a sequence number equals to the computed minimum sequence number, and
not just elements with a sequence number greater then that minimum.
