ext4: fix warning in ext4_da_update_reserve_space()
commit 7d7345322d60edb0fa49a64a89b31360f01d09cb upstream. reaim workfile.dbase test easily triggers warning in ext4_da_update_reserve_space(): EXT4-fs warning (device ram0): ext4_da_update_reserve_space:365: ino 12, allocated 1 with only 0 reserved metadata blocks (releasing 1 blocks with reserved 9 data blocks) The problem is that (one of) tests creates file and then randomly writes to it with O_SYNC. That results in writing back pages of the file in random order so we create extents for written blocks say 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 - this last allocation also allocates new block for extents. Then we writeout block 1 so we have extents 0-2, 4, 6, 8 and we release indirect extent block because extents fit in the inode again. Then we writeout block 10 and we need to allocate indirect extent block again which triggers the warning because we don't have the reservation anymore. Fix the problem by giving back freed metadata blocks resulting from extent merging into inode's reservation pool.
