Subject: [PATCH v4 9/9] ext4: Remove the logic to trim inode PAs

Earlier, inode PAs were stored in a linked list. This caused a need to
periodically trim the list down inorder to avoid growing it to a very
large size, as this would severly affect performance during list
iteration.

Recent patches changed this list to an rbtree, and since the tree scales
up much better, we no longer need to have the trim functionality, hence
remove it.
