Subject: [PATCH 1/2] ext4: optimize ea_inode block expansion

Copy ea data from inode entry when expanding ea block if possible.
Then remove the ea entry if expansion success. Thus memcpy to a
temporary buffer may be avoided.

If the expansion fails, we do not need to recovery the removed ea
entry neither in this way.
