2.6.28-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Aneesh Kumar K.V <aneesh.kumar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

(cherry picked from commit 032115fcef837a00336ddf7bda584e89789ea498)

We can call ext4_mb_check_limits even after successfully allocating
the requested blocks.  In that case, make sure we don't overwrite
ac_status if it already has the status AC_STATUS_FOUND.  This fixes
the lockdep warning:
