Hi Aneesh,

I found a bug in the latest uninitialized-block-groups patch.
(block_group == sbi->s_gdb_count - 1)  must be replaced by
(block_group == sbi->s_groups_count - 1) in the ext4_init_block_bitmap() 
function.

(Seen while testing the mballoc feature with uninit_groups option 
enabled. fsck reported an error on this group.)
