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

From: "Theodore Ts'o" <tytso@mit.edu>

(cherry picked from commit 485c26ec70f823f2a9cf45982b724893e53a859e)

If the block containing external extended attributes (which is stored
in i_file_acl and i_file_acl_high) is larger than the on-disk
filesystem, the process which tried to access the extended attributes
will endlessly issue kernel printks complaining that
"__find_get_block_slow() failed", locking up that CPU until the system
is forcibly rebooted.

So when we read in the inode, make sure the i_file_acl value is legal,
and if not, flag the filesystem as being corrupted.
