Oops! Thank you for letting me know. I will fix the comments as follows:

struct ext4_prealloc_info {
	__u64 pi_pstart;	/* physical offset for the start of the PA from
				 * the beginning of the disk (in/out) */
	__u32 pi_lstart;	/* logical offset for the start of the PA from
				 * the beginning of the file (in/out) */
