Subject: [PATCH 5/8] ext4: add the gdt block of meta_bg to system_zone

From: Chunguang Xu <brookxu@...cent.com>

In order to avoid poor search efficiency of system_zone, the
system only adds metadata of some sparse group to system_zone.
In the meta_bg scenario, the non-sparse group may contain gdt
blocks. Perhaps we should add these blocks to system_zone to
improve fault tolerance without significantly reducing system
performance.
