Subject: [PATCH] ext4: fix wrong calculation of minlen in ext4_trim_fs()

As Ted pointed out as below:

"
However the minlen variable in ext4_trim_fs is in units of *clusters*.
And so it gets rounded up two places.  The first time is when it is
converted into units of a cluster:

	minlen = EXT4_NUM_B2C(EXT4_SB(sb),
			      range->minlen >> sb->s_blocksize_bits);

Oh, and by the way, that first conversion is not correct as currently
written in ext4_fs_trim().   It should be

	minlen = (range->minlen + EXT4_CLUSTER_SIZE(sb) - 1) >>
		(sb->s_blocksize_bits + EXT4_CLUSTER_BITS(sb));
"

The reason is if range->minlen is smaller than block size of ext4,
original calculation "range->minlen >> sb->s_blocksize_bits" may
return zero, but since EXT4_NUM_B2C() expects a non-zero in-parameter,
so it needs to round up range->minlen to cluster size directly as above.
