Subject: [PATCH] ext2: fix improper assignment for e_value_offs

In the process of changing value for existing EA,
there is an improper assignment of e_value_offs(setting to 0),
because it will be reset to incorrect value in the following
loop(shifting EA values before target). Delayed assignment
can avoid this issue.
