Subject: [PATCH v2 2/4] ext4: remove unnecessary check from alloc_flex_gd()

In commit 967ac8af4475 ("ext4: fix potential integer overflow in
alloc_flex_gd()"), an overflow check is added to alloc_flex_gd() to
prevent the allocated memory from being smaller than expected due to
the overflow. However, after kmalloc() is replaced with kmalloc_array()
in commit 6da2ec56059c ("treewide: kmalloc() -> kmalloc_array()"), the
kmalloc_array() function has an overflow check, so the above problem
will not occur. Therefore, the extra check is removed.
