Subject: [PATCH 06/25] ext4: Fix credit estimate for final inode freeing

Estimate for the number of credits needed for final freeing of inode in
ext4_evict_inode() was to small. We may modify 4 blocks (inode & sb for
orphan deletion, bitmap & group descriptor for inode freeing) and not
just 3.

Fixes: e50e5129f384 ("ext4: xattr-in-inode support")
