Subject: [PATCH] ext4: Remove unreachable code

By enabling -Wunreachable-code-aggressive on Clang the following code
paths are unreachable.

Commit dd73b5d5cb67 ("ext4: convert dx_probe() to use the ERR_PTR
convention")
Commit ac27a0ec112a ("[PATCH] ext4: initial copy of files from ext3")

Clang warns:

fs/ext4/namei.c:831:17: warning: code will never be executed
[-Wunreachable-code]
                        unsigned n = count - 1;
                                     ^~~~~
fs/ext4/namei.c:830:7: note: silence by adding parentheses to mark code as
explicitly dead
                if (0) { // linear search cross check
                    ^
                    /* DISABLES CODE */ ( )
