I don't think this is correct...  This code should only be used if s_stripe
is NOT a power-of-two value, otherwise we can just use the buddy maps to
find aligned chunks.  As a result I don't think that "& (s_stripe - 1)"
change is equivalent to "/ s_stripe * s_stripe".

Hrmmm, I thought this should be "while (i < EXT4_BLOCKS_PER_GROUP(sb))"
and not "sb->s_blocksize * 8"?  Did that fix get lost somewhere?

There are a few other changes in the patch related to this fix:
