Subject: [PATCH 1/3] ext4: remove block bitmap initialization in ext4_new_inode()

We don't need to initialize the block bitmap when we allocate a new
inode.  This is old code from the very early days that is just
confusing things, and also has the problem of modifying the block
group descriptor without obeying the ext4_journal_get_write_access() /
ext4_handle_dirty_metadata() modification protocols.
