Subject: [PATCH 1/2 v2] e2fsck: Discard only unused parts of inode table

When calling e2fsck with '-E discard' option it might happen that
valid inodes are discarded accidentally. This is because we just
discard the part of inode table which lies past the highest used
inode. This is terribly wrong (sorry!).

This patch fixes it so only the free parts of an inode table
is discarded, leaving used inodes intact. This was tested with highly
fragmented inode tables with block size 4k and 1k.

v2: reworked so that we comply with inode number counting and adjust
    start in the e2fsck_discard_inodes(). Add some comments
