I think we should limit the descriptor size to a power-of-two value so that
we can access it with only shift operations instead of division, and we do
not need to worry about descriptors crossing blocks.

Also, the upper limit should be the filesystem blocksize.

This should be "if (desc_size > EXT2_MIN_DESC_SIZE)" I think, even though
the two are (currently) equivalent.
