You are correct!

befs_find_brun_direct() is called when the block position inside the file is inside the direct
range. Rechecking if it is past the range again inside that function, when we know it will always be
false is redundant.

Sorry for misreading it before.

The following comment on befs_find_brun_indirect() should be removed once this patch is merged, or
add the removal to this patch if you like:
- XXX:
- Really should check to make sure blockno is inside indirect
- region.
-

I don't see any other caller of these three functions (_direct, _indirect, _dblindrect) being added.

Thanks :)
