Subject: [PATCH] ext4: add checksum calculation when clearing UNINIT flag

From: Frederic Bohe <frederic.bohe@...l.net>

Block group's checksum need to be re-calculated during the
initialization of an UNINIT'd group. This fix a race when several
threads try to allocate a new inode in an UNINIT'd group.
