Subject: [PATCH] ocfs2: ac->ac_allow_chain_relink=0 won't disable group relink

commit 309a85b6861fedbb48a22d45e0e079d1be993b3a upstream.

ocfs2_block_group_alloc_discontig() disables chain relink by setting
ac->ac_allow_chain_relink = 0 because it grabs clusters from multiple
cluster groups.

It doesn't keep the credits for all chain relink,but
ocfs2_claim_suballoc_bits overrides this in this call trace:
ocfs2_block_group_claim_bits()->ocfs2_claim_clusters()->
__ocfs2_claim_clusters()->ocfs2_claim_suballoc_bits()
ocfs2_claim_suballoc_bits set ac->ac_allow_chain_relink = 1; then call
ocfs2_search_chain() one time and disable it again, and then we run out
of credits.

Fix is to allow relink by default and disable it in
ocfs2_block_group_alloc_discontig.

Without this patch, End-users will run into a crash due to run out of
credits, backtrace like this:
