rounddown_power_of_2() returns an undefined result when passed a
value of zero. The specualtive delayed allocation code is doing this
when the inode is zero length. Hence occasionally the preallocation
is much, much larger than is necessary (e.g. 8GB for a 270 _byte_
file). Ensure we don't even pass a zero value to this function so
the result of preallocation is always the desired size.
