Subject: [PATCH 7/7][TAKE5] ext4: support new modes

Support new values of mode in ext4.

This patch supports new mode values/flags in ext4. With this patch ext4
will be able to support FA_ALLOCATE and FA_RESV_SPACE modes. Supporting
FA_DEALLOCATE and FA_UNRESV_SPACE fallocate modes in ext4 is a work for
future.
