Subject: [PATCH v3 3/8] ext4: use __GFP_NOFAIL if allocating extents_status cannot fail

If extent status tree update fails, we have inconsistency between what is
stored in the extent status tree and what is stored on disk. And that can
cause even data corruption issues in some cases.

For extents that cannot be dropped we use __GFP_NOFAIL to allocate memory.
And with the above logic, the undo operation in __es_remove_extent that
may cause inconsistency if the split extent fails is unnecessary, so we
remove it as well.
