I couldn't compile the latest ext4 patch qeueu.

  LD      fs/ext3/ext3.o
  LD      fs/ext3/built-in.o
  CC      fs/ext4/balloc.o
fs/ext4/balloc.c: In function ‘ext4_has_free_blocks’:
fs/ext4/balloc.c:1629: error: implicit declaration of function ‘percpu_counter_sum_positive_set’

> +		    percpu_counter_sum_positive_set(&sbi->s_freeblocks_counter);

Maybe the above line which in percpucounter-add-sum-and-set-function.patch
is percpu_counter_sum_and_set(&sbi->s_freeblocks_couter).
