Subject[PATCH RFC 06/10] fs: Shrink only (SB_ACTIVE|SB_BORN) superblocks in super_cache_scan()
This patch prepares superblock shrinker for delayed unregistering.
It makes super_cache_scan() avoid shrinking of not active superblocks.
SB_ACTIVE is used as such the indicator. In case of superblock is not
active, super_cache_scan() just exits with SHRINK_STOP as result.

Note, that SB_ACTIVE is cleared in generic_shutdown_super() and this
is made under s_umount mutex. Function super_cache_scan() also takes
the mutex, so it can't skip this flag cleared.

SB_BORN check is added to super_cache_scan() just for uniformity
with super_cache_count(), while super_cache_count() received SB_ACTIVE
check just for uniformity with super_cache_scan().

After this patch super_cache_scan() becomes to ignore unregistering
superblocks, so this function is OK with splitting unregister_shrinker().
Next patches prepare super_cache_count() to follow this way.
