Lots of this patch is simply renaming xfs_bmalloca fields
"off" -> "offset", "rval" -> "blkno", and "alen" -> "length".
Those are very much appreciated changes. I know there are
already a lot of patches in this series but it would have
been easier to see the "real" change had that part been
pulled out as a trivial extra one.
But it looks good, anyway.
