Totally agree! I tried to move it to fs/ext4/extents_status.h before, so I
changed the function type to int, but later I realized that it was not 
necessary
to move it to the header file, but the function type was not changed back.

OK, looks good, thanks!

Okay, this is very nice!

Totally agree!

Can you please help review the remaining patches for any problems?
If you have any suggestions, I'll fix them together and post another 
version of v4.

Thanks again for your review!
