This looks buggy to me.  Let's say that free_objectid is currently 3.

Before, it would assign 3 to *objectid, and increment free_objectid to
4.  After (assuming the loop terminates on first iteration), it will
increment free_objectid to 4, then assign 4 to *objectid.

I think you meant to write:

	while (find_qgroup_rb(root->fs_info, root->free_objectid))
	*objectid = root->free_objectid++;

And the lesson here is that more compact code is not necessarily more
correct code.

(I'm not making any judgement about whether this is the correct fix;
I don't understand btrfs well enough to have an opinion.  Just that
this is not an equivalent transformation)
