[ 52/79] bcache: Fix GC_SECTORS_USED() calculation

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

3.10-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Kent Overstreet <kmo@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 29ebf465b9050f241c4433a796a32e6c896a9dcd upstream.

Part of the job of garbage collection is to add up however many sectors
of live data it finds in each bucket, but that doesn't work very well if
it doesn't reset GC_SECTORS_USED() when it starts. Whoops.

This wouldn't have broken anything horribly, but allocation tries to
preferentially reclaim buckets that are mostly empty and that's not
gonna work with an incorrect GC_SECTORS_USED() value.
