[PATCH 5.1 21/85] Btrfs: fix wrong ctime and mtime of a directory after log replay

commit 5338e43abbab13791144d37fd8846847062351c6 upstream.

When replaying a log that contains a new file or directory name that needs
to be added to its parent directory, we end up updating the mtime and the
ctime of the parent directory to the current time after we have set their
values to the correct ones (set at fsync time), efectivelly losing them.

Sample reproducer:

$ mkfs.btrfs -f /dev/sdb
$ mount /dev/sdb /mnt

$ mkdir /mnt/dir
$ touch /mnt/dir/file

# fsync of the directory is optional, not needed
$ xfs_io -c fsync /mnt/dir
$ xfs_io -c fsync /mnt/dir/file

$ stat -c %Y /mnt/dir

<power failure>

$ sleep 3
$ mount /dev/sdb /mnt
$ stat -c %Y /mnt/dir

--> should have been 1557856079, the mtime is updated to the current
time when replaying the log

Fix this by not updating the mtime and ctime to the current time at
btrfs_add_link() when we are replaying a log tree.

This could be triggered by my recent fsync fuzz tester for fstests, for
which an fstests patch exists titled "fstests: generic, fsync fuzz tester
with fsstress".
