Three comments.  Instead of using a new option, why not simply let
resize2fs check to see if the optional parameter is something like
"min" or "0"?

Secondly, I'd suggest factoring out the calculation of the minimal
size into a separate function.

Finally, please don't fix whitespace issues, as it makes it harder for me
to merge between the "maint" and "master" development lines.  What I
plan to do is to do a massive fixup of trailing whitespace before the
next major (1.41) release of e2fsprogs.  Any new lines added by
patches should not introduce any new trailing whitespace, of course.
