Default GFS2: fix s_writers.counter imbalance in gfs2_ail_empty_gl

From: Eric Sandeen <sandeen@redhat.com>

gfs2_ail_empty_gl() contains an "inline version" of gfs2_trans_begin(),
so it needs an explicit sb_start_intwrite() as well, to balance the
sb_end_intwrite() which will be called by gfs2_trans_end().

With this, xfstest 068 passes on lock_nolock local gfs2.
Without it, we reach a writer count of -1 and get stuck.
