Subject: [PATCH] ext4: Make sanity check in mballoc more strict

Sanity check in mb_find_extent() only checked that returned extent does
not extend past blocksize * 8, however it should not extend past
EXT4_CLUSTERS_PER_GROUP(sb). This can happen when clusters_per_group <
blocksize * 8 and the tail of the bitmap is not properly filled by 1s
which happened e.g. when ancient kernels have grown the filesystem.

As a background: We have a customer who has filesystems (created & apparently
resized by 3.0 or older kernels) and which make current kernels eventually barf
with errors but e2fsck says everything is fine.  This patch makes mballoc code
detect issues earlier. I'll send appropriate e2fsck patch shortly.
