Ext4 already performs block allocation on rename, but it does it after
rename was complete, so race window is much tighter but still exist.
In order to guarantee atomic behavior let's force block allocation before
actual rename. This rearrangement should not affect IO performance.

- Code cleanup: It is possible to move some checks out of transaction
  which theoretically may result in better performance.
