We have this check to make sure we don't accidentally add older devices
that may have disappeared and re-appeared with an older generation from
being added to an fs_devices.  This makes sense, we don't want stale
disks in our file system.  However for single disks this doesn't really
make sense.  I've seen this in testing, but I was provided a reproducer
from a project that builds btrfs images on loopback devices.  The
loopback device gets cached with the new generation, and then if it is
re-used to generate a new file system we'll fail to mount it because the
new fs is "older" than what we have in cache.

Fix this by simply ignoring this check if we're a single disk file
system, as we're not going to cause problems for the fs by allowing the
disk to be mounted with an older generation than what is in our cache.

I've also added a error message for this case, as it was kind of
annoying to find originally.

- Added Anand's reviewed-by.
- Rebased onto misc-next.
- GIANT NOTE: This was marked with needs a test, but I sent a test at the same
  time and it's been merged into xfstests already, it's btrfs/219.
