Thanks for the patch submission!

I further modified the patch to make the commit description a bit
clearer, and to fix an additional bug that I noticed while reviewing
your patch.

Subject: [PATCH] ext4: fix credits computing for indirect mapped files

When writing a contiguous set of blocks, two indirect blocks could be
needed depending on how the blocks are aligned, so we need to increase
the number of credits needed by one.

[ Also fixed a another bug which could further underestimate the
  number of journal credits needed by 1; the code was using integer
  division instead of DIV_ROUND_UP() -- tytso]
