jbd2 journal handling code doesn't want jbd2_might_wait_for_commit()
to be placed between start_this_handle() and stop_this_handle(). So it
marks the region with rwsem_acquire_read() and rwsem_release().

However, the annotation is too strong for that purpose. We don't have to
use more than try lock annotation for that.

rwsem_acquire_read() implies:

   1. might be a waiter on contention of the lock.
   2. enter to the critical section of the lock.

All we need in here is to act 2, not 1. So trylock version of annotation
is sufficient for that purpose. Now that dept partially relies on
lockdep annotaions, dept interpets rwsem_acquire_read() as a potential
wait and might report a deadlock by the wait. So replaced it with
trylock version of annotation.
