fat: Check s_dirt in fat_sync_fs()

If we didn't check sb->s_dirt, it will update the FSINFO
unconditionally. It will reduce the filetime of flash base device.

So, this checks sb->s_dirt. sb->s_dirt is racy, however FSINFO is just
hint. So even if there is race, and we hit it, it would not become big

And this also is as workaround of suspend problem.
