Subject[PATCH V2 for 3.2] fs/direct-io.c: Calculate fs_count correctly in get_more_blocks.
Date
From: Tao Ma <boyu.mt@taobao.com>

In get_more_blocks, we use dio_count to calculate fs_count to let the
file system map(maybe also create) blocks. And some tricky things are
done to increase fs_count if dio_count isn't aligned.

But actually it still has some cornor case that can't be coverd. See the
following example:
./dio_write foo -s 1024 -w 4096(direct write 4096 bytes at offset 1024).

In this case, the old calculation counts fs_count to be 1, but actually
we will write into 2 different blocks(if fs_blocksize=4096). So the
underlying file system is called twice and leads to some performance
overhead. So fix it by calculating fs_count correctly and let the file
system knows what we really want to write.
