Looks good. Just some small suggestions below...

Maybe we can return bool? Also I'd rephrase the comment as:

/*
 * Returns true if we cannot fail to allocate memory for this extent_status
 * entry and cannot reclaim it until its status changes.
 */

Let's rephrase the comment as:
	/* Decrease the shrink counter when we can reclaim the extent */

I guess we can just drop this comment. The function name explains enough...
