This changes the error to be returned from 0 to ENOSPC. Adding error
messages shouldn't change the logic of the code.

Also, you might want tolook at how ENOSPC is returned from
xfs_ialloc_ag_alloc(). it only occurs when:

        if (mp->m_maxicount &&
            mp->m_sb.sb_icount + newlen > mp->m_maxicount) {

i.e. it is exactly the same error case as the "noroom" error below.
It has nothing to do with being unable to allocate inodes in the
specific AG - the global inode count is too high. IOWs, the error
message is not correct.

Also, 80 columns.

The error message here is misleading - the error is that we've
exceeded the maximum inode count for the filesystem (same as the
above error message case), so no further allocations are allowed.

What about the !noroom case? Isn't that a real ENOSPC condition?
i.e. we've tried to allocate inodes in every AG and yet we've failed
in all of them because there is no aligned, contiguous free space in
any of the AGs. Shouldn't that emit an appropriate warning?

Default behaviour on a loop break is to allocate inodes, not return
ENOSPC.

BTW, there's no need to cc LKML for XFS specific patches. LKML is
noisy enough as it is without unnecessary cross-posts....

Cheers,

Dave.
