Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.9 7/7] ext4: avoid resizing to a partial cluster size

From: "Kiselev, Oleg" <okiselev@...zon.com>

[ Upstream commit 69cb8e9d8cd97cdf5e293b26d70a9dee3e35e6bd ]

This patch avoids an attempt to resize the filesystem to an
unaligned cluster boundary.  An online resize to a size that is not
integral to cluster size results in the last iteration attempting to
grow the fs by a negative amount, which trips a BUG_ON and leaves the fs
with a corrupted in-memory superblock.
