ext4: online defrag -- Add the EXT4_IOC_SUPER_INFO ioctl

From: Akira Fujita <a-fujita@rs.jp.nec.com>

EXT4_IOC_SUPER_INFO gets super block information on disk.

Super block information is necessary for relevant (-r) and force (-f) defrag.
Non-root user can't get this information by opening the block device directly,
so implement this ioctl newly.
