Subject: [PATCH] ext4: fix corruption when online resizing a fs with 1K block

commit 6ca792edc13c409e8d4eb9001e048264c6a2eb64 upstream.

Subtracting the number of the first data block places the superblock
backups one block too early, corrupting the file system. When the block
size is larger than 1K, the first data block is 0, so the subtraction
has no effect and no corruption occurs.
