Subject[PATCH 4.10 076/167] ext4: trim allocation requests to group size
Date
4.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jan Kara <jack@suse.cz>

commit cd648b8a8fd5071d232242d5ee7ee3c0815776af upstream.

If filesystem groups are artifically small (using parameter -g to
mkfs.ext4), ext4_mb_normalize_request() can result in a request that is
larger than a block group. Trim the request size to not confuse
allocation code.
