Subject: [PATCH 1/2] ext4: Use raw numbers for EXT4_MAP_XXX flags

Trace's macro __print_flags() produce raw event's decraration w/o knowing actual flags value

cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/ext4/ext4_ext_map_blocks_exit/format
..
__print_flags(REC->mflags, "", { (1 << BH_New),
..
This means that  perf-script can not decode bintrace file because BH_XXX is just a text and it is
unknown for perf's userspace. As result perf will dump this field as raw hex number
This patch use explicit numbers to describe EXT4_MAP_XXX flags so __print_flags will works as expected.

#Before patch
ext4:ext4_ext_map_blocks_exit: dev 253,0 ino 2 flags  lblk 0 pblk 4177 len 1 mflags 0x20 ret 1
ext4:ext4_ext_map_blocks_exit: dev 253,0 ino 12 flags CREATE lblk 0 pblk 34304 len 1 mflags 0x60 ret 1

#With patch
ext4:ext4_ext_map_blocks_exit: dev 253,0 ino 2 flags  lblk 0 pblk 4177 len 1 mflags M ret 1
ext4:ext4_ext_map_blocks_exit: dev 253,0 ino 12 flags CREATE lblk 0 pblk 34816 len 1 mflags NM ret 1
