Subject: [PATCH v2] ext4: simplify 32bit calculation of lblk

commit <ad4fb9cafe100a> (ext4: fix 32bit overflow in ext4_ext_find_goal())
uses value compare to fix 32bit overflow. The resion is that
(block - ext_block) will overflow and cast u32 to u64.
eg: -1(u32) cast to 0xffffffff(u64) which wasn't correct here.
Remove the brackets will solve it simply.
