My comment about why not use ext4_mb_free_blocks() still applies.
Also, if you're going to replace a patch, please put V2 (or Vn+1) in
the subject like.  I wasted time dealing with your earlier set of
three resize patches since I didn't realize they were replicated in
this six patch series.

Also, Patch 2 of 6 didn't apply as of 2.6.28-rc3.  I fixed it up in
the patch queue, but please check it.
