Subject[patch 17/40] md: fix an unsigned compare to allow creation of bitmaps with v1.0 metadata


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

------------------
From: NeilBrown <neilb@suse.de>

patch 85bfb4da8cad483a4e550ec89060d05a4daf895b in mainline.

As page->index is unsigned, this all becomes an unsigned comparison, which
almost always returns an error.
