[26/68] GFS2: Fix bmap allocation corner-case bug

From: Greg KH
Date: Mon Feb 28 2011 - 11:48:10 EST

2.6.32-longterm review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Steven Whitehouse <swhiteho@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 07ccb7bf2c928fef4fea2cda69ba2e23479578db upstream.

This patch solves a corner case during allocation which occurs if both
metadata (indirect) and data blocks are required but there is an
obstacle in the filesystem (e.g. a resource group header or another
allocated block) such that when the allocation is requested only
enough blocks for the metadata are returned.

By changing the exit condition of this loop, we ensure that a
minimum of one data block will always be returned.
