Yeah, that's kind of a bummer.  And given the semi-ugly situation
we're in with inode32, maybe a syslog message would be good.

But a few things; I don't think we want to warn on every inode-allocation
ENOSPC.  Ideally I'd probably do a WARN_ON_ONCE or a ratelimited printk.
xfs_warn_once_per_fs()?  :)

I'd probably also want to only do it in the case where the ENOSPC was due
to either inode32, or due to fragmented freespace.

Without looking very hard yet; could this be done in xfs_dialloc() so that
the exact reason for the ENOSPC can be issued?  (maxicount, inode32, or
no free contiguous space...)
