Subject: [PATCH] ext4: Variable to signed to check return code

Variables 'n' and 'err' are both used for less-than-zero error checking,
however both are declared as unsigned. Ensure ext4_map_blocks() and
add_system_zone() are able to have their return values propagated
correctly by redefining them both as signed integers.

../fs/ext4/block_validity.c:158:9: warning: comparison of unsigned
expression < 0 is always false [-Wtype-limits]
    if (n < 0) {
        ^

../fs/ext4/block_validity.c:173:12: warning: comparison of unsigned
expression < 0 is always false [-Wtype-limits]
    if (err < 0)
        ^
