Overall this looks fine, a few smaller comments below.

ext4_add_overhead() would be a better name I suppose. Also the 'overhead'
should rather be ext4_fsblk_t to be on the safe side...

Empty line between variable declarations and the code please.

						^^^ the typecast looks
bogus here...

The barrier without any comment makes me really wonder why it is here...
But I get ext4_calculate_overhead() has is as well so you're just keeping
it.
