Subject: WARNING: at fs/ext4/extents.c:4434 ext4_convert_unwritten_extent

I've got this on 286'th MOUNT_OPTIONS=-onoload

We assumes that we are protected from ENOSPC during
ext4_convert_unwritten_extents() by passing EXT4_GET_BLOCKS_PRE_IO
on submitting AIO which split extent via ext4_split_unwritten_extents()
But this is not sufficient:

submit_aio                              Fallocate worker
 ->ext4_map_blocks(lblk, len)
   ->ext4_ext_map_blocks( )
   file: U1---------------------U2|_____EOF
   file: U1------U1|U2---len----U2|_____EOF
                                       ->ext4_fallocate(lblk, len+len2)
                                                         U2: Grows
                                           file: U1-------U1|U2----len+len2--U2|__EOF
            ## Discover that new split required in order to get:
            file: U1-------U1|U2----len----U2|U3--len2--U2__EOF
            This procedure fail with ENOSPC
