Subject: [PATCH next/mmotm] ext4: fix cache_es after merge_left

Kernel build with CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB or CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG slub_debug=FPZ
gives me kernel BUG at fs/ext4/extents_status.c:142!  That's the
BUG_ON(es->start + es->len < es->start) in extent_status_end() called
from ext4_es_insert_extent().  tree->cache_es has been freed and poisoned.

This comes from when ext4_es_try_to_merge_left() merges es into leftward
es1, but ext4_es_insert_extent()'s out then updates cache_es to the freed
extent_status.  ext4_es_try_to_merge_right() does not pose a problem.

Change ext4_es_try_to_merge_left() to return whichever extent_status
should be recorded in tree->cache_es.  Remove cache_es update from
both of them, leaving that to ext4_es_insert_extent()'s out label.
