Subject: ext4: fix freespace accounting with mballoc on 32bit machines
From: Eric Sandeen <sandeen@...hat.com>

On a 32bit machine, passing the negative unsigned long fe_len
into percpu_counter_add (which expects s64) messes up the counters:

[root@...r-05 linux-2.6.23-rc7]# df -h

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdb7              97G -149P  149P   -  /mnt/test

Patch below fixes this.
