  ext4: undo ext4_calc_metadata_amount if we fail to claim space (2012-07-23 00:00:20 -0400)

The usual collection of bug fixes and optimizations.  Perhaps of
greatest note is a speed up for parallel, non-allocating DIO writes,
since we no longer take the i_mutex lock in that case.  For bug fixes,
we fix an incorrect overhead calculation which caused slightly
incorrect results for df(1) and statfs(2).  We also fixed bugs in the
metadata checksum feature.

      ext4: avoid uneeded calls to ext4_mb_load_buddy() while reading mb_groups
