Whoops, this should be B2C to convert a block number to a cluster

Hmm, I note that this wasn't picked up by our regression tests.
Mental note to self --- we need to add more regression tests to better
exercise bigalloc resizes.  Currently we have a big warning which gets
printed about off-line resizes of bigalloc file systems being
experimentlal, but we should aim to do better.  :-)
