It's not, it keeps space in inode page only if inode is created when
inline_xattr option is set. What I comment and suggest for
MAX_FAST_SYMLINK_SIZE is wrong, sorry about that.

We'd better set max size of fast symlink according to inline_xattr flag:

static inline unsigned int max_fast_symlink_size(struct inode *inode)
return sizeof(__le32) * addrs_per_inode(F2FS_I(inode));

How do you think?
