Subject: [PATCH] ext4: Use superblock s_raid_stripe_width as stripe size during block allocation.

The stipe size used during block allocation is calculated as below.
a) if we specify a stripe=<value> option using mount time. Use that value.
b) if not use the value specified in super block.
b) If the value specfied at mount time is greater than blocks per group use
the value specified ini the super block.
