This looks buggy.  Previously this returned EXT2_ET_DIR_NO_SPACE_FOR_CSUM if the
last dirent extends beyond where the metadata checksum entry is supposed to
begin, but doesn't exceed fs->blocksize.  But your change makes it return
EXT2_ET_DIR_CORRUPTED in that case, which is potentially a regression.

How about:

diff --git a/lib/ext2fs/csum.c b/lib/ext2fs/csum.c
