logfs: initialize superblock entries earlier
In particular, s_freeing_list needs to be initialized early, since it is used on some of the error paths when mounts fail. The mapping inode, for example, would be initialized and then free'd on an error path before s_freeing_list was initialized, but the inode drop operation needs the s_freeing_list to be set up. Normally you'd never see this, because not only is logfs fairly rare, but a successful mount will never have any issues.
