I am not clear about ext4_da_release_space. Are we accounting for the
blocks related to meta-data blocks allocated ? . In
ext4_da_get_block_write we get the number of data blocks allocated.
and we don't update sbi->s_freeblocks_counter in the block allocator
any more. So request for meta-data blocks are not updating the
sbi->s_freeblocks_counter. In ext4_da_release_space we  update
the  sbi->s_freeblocks_counter without considering the above. Am  I
missing something ?
