Well, it depends if map->m_lblk == es.es_lblk + offset prior to the
assignment? If that's always true, then sure, it'd be redundant. But
honestly, I don't know what the downstream effect would be if this was
removed. I'd have to look at the code, perform some tests, and figure
it out.

Depends on what we conclude in 1/8. :)

I'm for removing 'first_block', but still not convinced removing
'type' is heading down the right track if I were to forward think a
little.
