No, this patch is broken. Where it fails is specifically the case where
you want to autofit the largest possible size, you have different size
devices, and the first device is not the smallest. When you hit the
first device, you will set size, then as you repeat the ITERATE_RDEV
loop, when you hit the smaller device, size will be non-0 and you'll
then trigger the later if and return -ENOSPC. In the case of autofit,
you have to preserve the fit variable instead of looking at size so you
know whether or not to modify the size when you hit a smaller device
later in the list.
