Subject: [RFC PATCH 2/2] ext4: undo ei->i_da_metadata_calc_len increment if
 we fail to claim space

From: Brian Foster <bfoster@...hat.com>

If we call ext4_calc_metadata_amount() and then fail to claim
the space, a subsequent successful request to a block covered
by the same ext2 indirect block will set md_needed to 0, fail
to update the associated counters and result in a delayed md
block allocation without a reservation. Decrement
i_da_metadata_calc_len on failure to ensure the next
reservation sets md_needed correctly.
