ext4: use non-movable memory for the ext4 superblock

Since the ext4 superblock is not released until the file system is
unmounted, allocate the buffer cache entry for the ext4 superblock out
of the non-moveable are to allow page migrations and thus CMA
allocations to more easily succeed if the CMA area is limited.
