This should be static, so we don't leak symbols that don't begin with
"ext4_" into kernel namespace.  I've checked and future users of this
function are in fs/ext4/resize.c, so there's no reason for this not to
be non-static.

(A good thing to do while doing development is to run "nm ext4.ko" and
check for exported symbols that you aren't expecting.)

Again, I'll fix this as a minor nit.
