A large protofile which creates a large directory and requires

This is because when we've split a block once, we decrement args->total:
(see kernel commit a7444053fb3ebd3d905e3c7a7bd5ea80a54b083a for the

        /* account for newly allocated blocks in reserved blocks total */
        args->total -= dp->i_d.di_nblocks - nblks;

but every call into this path from proto file parsing started
reserved / args->total as only "1" as passed tro newdirent() -
so if we allocate a block, args->total hits 0, and then in

          * Add the new leaf entry.
         rval = xfs_dir2_leafn_add(blk->bp, args, blk->index);
         if (rval == 0) {
         } else {
                  * It didn't work, we need to split the leaf block.
                 if (args->total == 0) {
                         ASSERT(rval == ENOSPC);
                         goto done;
                  * Split the leaf block and insert the new entry.

we hit the args->total == 0 special case, and don't do the next
split, and ENOSPC gets returned all the way up, and we fail.

So rather than calling newdirent with a total of "1" in every case,
which doesn't account for possible tree splits, we should call it
with a more appropriate value: XFS_DIRENTER_SPACE_RES(mp, name->len),
which will handle the maximum nr of block allocations that might be
needed during a directory entry insert.

Since the reservation required doesn't depend on entry type,
just push this down a level, into newdirent() itself.

None collide with the for Linux 3.12 kernel/user sync series.

The kernel patches should make Linux 3.12.
