When the old device has new fsid through btrfs device add -f <dev> our
fs_devices list has an alien device in one of the fs_devices.

By having an alien device in fs_devices, we have two issues so far

1. missing device is not shows as missing in the userland

Which is due to cracks in the function btrfs_open_one_device() and
hardened by patch
 btrfs: delete identified alien device in open_fs_devices

2. mount of a degraded fs_devices fails

Which is due to cracks in the function btrfs_free_extra_devids() and
hardened by patch
 btrfs: include non-missing as a qualifier for the latest_bdev

Now the reason for both of this issue is that there is an alien (does not
contain the intended fsid) device in the fs_devices.

We know a device can be scanned/added through
or by

And device coming through btrfs-control is checked against the all other
devices in btrfs kernel but not coming through BTRFS_IOC_ADD_DEV.

This patch checks if the device add is alienating any other scanned
device and deletes it.

In fact, this patch fixes both the issues 1 and 2 (above) by eliminating
the source of the issue, but still they have their own patch as well
because its the right way to harden the functions and fill the cracks.
