[ Upstream commit ae4ad7ea09d32ff1b6fb908ff12f8c1bd5241b29 ]

The existing threshold for allowable holes at checkpoint=disable time is
too high. The OVP space contains reserved segments, which are always in
the form of free segments. These must be subtracted from the OVP value.

The current threshold is meant to be the maximum value of holes of a
single type we can have and still guarantee that we can fill the disk
without failing to find space for a block of a given type.

If the disk is full, ignoring current reserved, which only helps us,
the amount of unused blocks is equal to the OVP area. Of that, there
are reserved segments, which must be free segments, and the rest of the
ovp area, which can come from either free segments or holes. The maximum
possible amount of holes is OVP-reserved.

Now, consider the disk when mounting with checkpoint=disable.
We must be able to fill all available free space with either data or
node blocks. When we start with checkpoint=disable, holes are locked to
their current type. Say we have H of one type of hole, and H+X of the
other. We can fill H of that space with arbitrary typed blocks via SSR.
For the remaining H+X blocks, we may not have any of a given block type
left at all. For instance, if we were to fill the disk entirely with
blocks of the type with fewer holes, the H+X blocks of the opposite type
would not be used. If H+X > OVP-reserved, there would be more holes than
could possibly exist, and we would have failed to find a suitable block
earlier on, leading to a crash in update_sit_entry.

If H+X <= OVP-reserved, then the holes end up effectively masked by the OVP
region in this case.
