The new problem definitions were inserted into the wrong place in
problem.c.  This is something that was picked up by a unit test in the
e2fsck directory:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=../lib DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=../lib ./tst_problem
*** Unordered problem table:
curr code = 0x00010065: The bad @b @i looks @n.  
*** prev code = 0x00010067: @i %i passes checks, but checksum does not match @i.  
*** This is a programming error in e2fsck
make[1]: *** [check] Error 1

The fix was simple; just move the new lines in problem.c down two lines.

PR1_QUOTA_INODE_NOT_HIDDEN isn't currently used, so there's no point
changing it now.  Depending on how this bit of the first class quota
patch gets implemented, the message might change completely.
