Hi again,

I realize after I sent the note that maybe the caller is still expected to pass EXT4_GET_BLOCKS_PRE_IO in the flags parameter if it is supposed to be used in both ext4_split_extent_at cases.  That also fixes that particular failing test case. So maybe we wont need the extra fix if that is how the code is intended to work.  In any case though, yes "flags1 = flags | EXT4_GET_BLOCKS_PRE_IO;" does seem a bit cleaner.
