Subject: [PATCH] xfs: mark xfs_dir2_sf_entry_t as __packed again

For ARM OABI builds, we run into a compile time assertion:

inlined from 'init_xfs_fs' at /git/arm-soc/fs/xfs/xfs_super.c:1991:2:
fs/xfs/xfs_ondisk.h:119:208: error: call to '__compiletime_assert_119' declared with attribute error: XFS: sizeof(xfs_dir2_sf_entry_t) is wrong, expected 3

While ARM OABI is pretty much dead and fails to build for typical
configurations on modern architectures (ARMv6 or higher), and has
been declared deprecated in user space since gcc-4.6, the kernel
still allows it to used for building the kernel.

In commit 8353a649f577 ("xfs: kill xfs_dir2_sf_off_t"), Christoph
removed the old __arch_pack annotation that made it possible to
build xfs with oddball ABIs. However, OABI not only requrires
padding around short structure but still adds padding after this
change. There is no harm to unconditionally mark the structure as
__packed now, and that will do the right thing here.

As of commit aa2dd0ad4d6d ("xfs: remove __arch_pack"), we need to
use __packed here as well, instead of the old __arch_pack.

Fixes: 8353a649f577 ("xfs: kill xfs_dir2_sf_off_t")
