Eric Sandeen - June 22, 2011, 6:37 p.m.
I found that ext4_ext_find_goal() and ext4_find_near()
share the same code for returning a coloured start block
based on i_block_group.

We can refactor this into a common function so that they
don't diverge in the future.

I don't know that I like the new function name too much,
I'm open to suggestions...

What about ext4_goal_block_from_inode() or ext4_start_block_from_inode() or
ext4_inode_to_{goal,start}_block()?  One of last ones might be good since
it makes it clear this function is related to other ext4_inode_*() functions.

ext4_inode_to_goal_block sounds good to me, I'll resend, thanks.
