They don't matter for fallocate, because ext4 doesn't require clusters
to be fully allocated like ocfs2 and xfs do.

This means that all the bigalloc codepaths have this horrible "implied
cluster allocation" thing sprinkled everywhere where to map in a single
block you have to scan left and right in the extent map to see if anyone
already mapped something.  And even more strangely, extent tree blocks
don't do this, so it seems to waste the entire cluster past the first fs
block.

But I guess it /does/ mean that _get_file_block_size doesn't have to do
anything special for ext*.
