Subject: [PATCH 0/10 v2] e2fsprogs: Handle s_inodes_count overflow better


this series fixes several issues related to resize2fs overflowing
s_inodes_count. Patches 1 and 2 fix overflows of s_inodes_count in libext2fs.
Patch 3 is a small cleanup in resize2fs. Patch 4 fixes a bug in libext2fs where
we could inadvertedly create a filesystem with both resize_inode and meta_bg
features enabled. Patches 5-9 make it possible for ext2fs_open() to open
a filesystem with overflown s_inodes_count and fix it up using debugfs /
e2fsck. Patch 10 fixes ugly output from e2fsck.

Changes since v1:
* Added reviewed-by tags from Andreas
* Fixed up some type & constant inconsistencies pointed out by Andreas
* Improved changelog to explain why e2fsck cannot fix s_inodes_count overflow
