This is why it's less desirable to add functions one at a time.  I had
to look through all of the patches to determine that
ext4_add_new_desc() is _only_ being called by ext4_add_new_descs().
And since ext4_add_new_descs() adds so little new value, it's better
to combine these two functions together into single function.

I'll add a new patch which folds these two functions together.
