yeah, the extra varaible isn't needed. Here is the updated patch.

Subject: [PATCH v2] ext3: speed up group trim with the right free block count.

When we trim some free blocks in a group of ext3, we should
calculate the free blocks properly and check whether there are
enough freed blocks left for us to trim. Current solution will
only calculate free spaces if they are large for a trim which
is wrong.

Let us see a small example:
a group has 1.5M free which are 300k, 300k, 300k, 300k, 300k.
And minblocks is 1M. With current solution, we have to iterate
the whole group since these 300k will never be subtracted from
1.5M. But actually we should exit after we find the first 2
free spaces since the left 3 chunks only sum up to 900K if we
subtract the first 600K although they can't be trimed.
