Default GFS2: BUG in gfs2_adjust_quota

From: Abhijith Das <adas@redhat.com>

HighMem pages on i686 do not get mapped to the buffer_heads and this was
causing a NULL pointer dereference when we were trying to memset page buffers
to zero.
We now use zero_user() that kmaps the page and directly manipulates page data.
This patch also fixes a boundary condition that was incorrect.
