Subject: [PATCH] ext4: Fix crash when working on a fuzzed ext2 fs image

On a ppc64 machine, when mounting a fuzzed ext2 image (generated by
fsfuzzer) the following call trace is seen,

VFS: brelse: Trying to free free buffer
WARNING: CPU: 1 PID: 6913 at /root/repos/linux/fs/buffer.c:1165 .__brelse.part.6+0x24/0x40
.__brelse.part.6+0x20/0x40 (unreliable)

This happens because the directory that ext4_find_entry() looks up has
inode->i_size that is less than the block size of the filesystem. This
causes 'nblocks' to have a value of zero. ext4_bread_batch() ends up not
reading any of the directory file's blocks. This renders the entries in
bh_use[] array to continue to have garbage data. buffer_uptodate() on
bh_use[0] can then return a zero value upon which brelse() function is
invoked.

This commit fixes the bug by returning -ENOENT when the directory file
has no associated blocks.
