Implement the new ->lazytime_expired method to get notified of lazytime
timestamp expirations, instead of relying on ->dirty_inode(inode,
I_DIRTY_SYNC) which is potentially ambiguous.

This fixes a bug where XFS didn't write lazytime timestamps to disk upon
a sync(), or after 24 hours (dirtytime_expire_interval * 2).  This is
because it only wrote the timestamps if I_DIRTY_TIME was set in i_state.
But actually when an inode's timestamps expire without the inode being
marked I_DIRTY_SYNC first, then ->dirty_inode isn't called until
__writeback_single_inode() has already cleared I_DIRTY_TIME in i_state.

The new ->lazytime_expired method is unambiguous, so it removes any need
to check for I_DIRTY_TIME, which avoids this bug.

I've written an xfstest which reproduces this bug.

Fixes: c3b1b13190ae ("xfs: implement the lazytime mount option")
