3.13.11.8 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: "Darrick J. Wong" <darrick.wong at oracle.com>

commit 022eaa7517017efe4f6538750c2b59a804dc7df7 upstream.

When recovering the journal, don't fall into an infinite loop if we
encounter a corrupt journal block.  Instead, just skip the block and
return an error, which fails the mount and thus forces the user to run
a full filesystem fsck.
