Subject: [PATCHv2 9/9] common/attr: Reduce MAX_ATTRS to leave some overhead for 64K blocksize

Test generic/020 fails for ext4 with 64K blocksize.
This adds changes in common/attr for MAX_ATTRS calculations for
ext2|ext3|ext4 along with comments explaining the calculations.

+	# "attribute_NN" which is 12, and "value_NN" which is 8.
+	# But for larger block sizes, we start having extended attributes of the
+	# form "attribute_NNN" or "attribute_NNNN", and "value_NNN" and
+	# "value_NNNN", which causes the round(len(..), 4) to jump up by 4
+	# bytes.  So round_up(len(attr_name, 4)) becomes 16 instead of 12, and
+	# round_up(len(value, 4)) becomes 12 instead of 8.

+	# For 64K blocksize the calculation becomes

+	#
+	# Note (for 4K bs) above are exact calculations for attrs of type
+	# attribute_NN with values of type value_NN.
+	# With above calculations, for 4k blocksize max_attrs becomes 112.
