xfs_ialloc_ag_select() iterates through the allocation groups looking
for free inodes or free space to determine whether to allow an inode
allocation to proceed. If no free inodes are available, it assumes that
an AG must have an extent longer than mp->m_ialloc_blks.

Sparse inode chunk support currently allows for allocations as small as
the cluster size. If sparse inodes are supported, use the cluster
alignment as a minimum extent size limit to determine whether an inode
chunk allocation attempt can proceed.
