[PATCH] xfs: fix potential infinite loop in xfs_iomap_prealloc_size()

If freesp == 0, we could end up in an infinite loop while squashing
the preallocation. Break the loop when we've killed the prealloc

Hi all,

Mark caught this while reviewing the quota throttling patchset. I figured
it better that my set depend on this rather than vice versa, so I'll plan on a
v5 for at least a rebase, but I'll wait a bit for further comments on v4.
