Subject: [PATCH] ext2/ext3: allocate ->s_blockgroup_lock separately to avoid
 wasting space

From: Pekka Enberg <penberg@...helsinki.fi>

As spotted by kmemtrace, struct ext2_sb_info is 17024 bytes and ext3_sb_info is
17152 bytes on 64-bit which makes them a very bad fit for SLAB allocators. In
fact, both allocations are round up to the next available page size of 
order 3 which is 32 KB.

The culprit if the wasted memory is the ->s_blockgroup_lock which can be as big
as 16 KB when CONFIG_NR_CPUS is set to 32. As struct blockgroup_lock is a
perfect fit for order 2 page in the worst case, allocate ->s_blockgroup_lock
separately to avoid wasting space.

The change shrinks struct ext2_sb_info to 592 bytes and struct ext3_sb_info to
640 bytes which fits into a 1024 byte slab cache so now we allocate 16 KB + 1
KB instead of 32 KB saving 15 KB of memory!
