Subject: [patch 278/354] ext4 balloc: fix _with_rsv freeze

From: Hugh Dickins <hugh@...itas.com>

Port fix to the off-by-one in find_next_usable_block's memscan from ext2 to
ext4; but it didn't cause a serious problem for ext4 because the additional
ext4_test_allocatable check rescued it from the error.
