btrfs: fix invalid removal of root ref
If we have the following sequence of events btrfs sub create A btrfs sub create A/B btrfs sub snap A C mkdir C/foo mv A/B C/foo rm -rf * We will end up with a transaction abort. The reason for this is because we create a root ref for B pointing to A. When we create a snapshot of C we still have B in our tree, but because the root ref points to A and not C we will make it appear to be empty. The problem happens when we move B into C. This removes the root ref for B pointing to A and adds a ref of B pointing to C. When we rmdir C we'll see that we have a ref to our root and remove the root ref, despite not actually matching our reference name. Now btrfs_del_root_ref() allowing this to work is a bug as well, however we know that this inode does not actually point to a root ref in the first place, so we shouldn't be calling btrfs_del_root_ref() in the first place and instead simply look up our dir index for this item and do the rest of the removal.
