xfs: fix crc field handling in xfs_sb_to/from_disk

I discovered this in userspace, but the same change applies
to the kernel.

If we xfs_mdrestore an image from a non-crc filesystem, lo
and behold the restored image has gained a CRC:

# db/ -o /dev/sdc1 - | xfs_mdrestore - test.img
# xfs_db -c "sb 0" -c "p crc" /dev/sdc1
crc = 0 (correct)
# xfs_db -c "sb 0" -c "p crc" test.img
crc = 0xb6f8d6a0 (correct)

This is because xfs_sb_from_disk doesn't fill in sb_crc,
but xfs_sb_to_disk(XFS_SB_ALL_BITS) does write the in-memory
CRC to disk - so we get uninitialized memory on disk.

Fix this by always initializing sb_crc to 0 when we read
the superblock, and masking out the CRC bit from ALL_BITS
when we write it.
