Default GFS2: reread rindex when necessary to grow rindex

When GFS2 grew the filesystem, it was never rereading the rindex file during
the grow. This is necessary for large grows when the filesystem is almost full,
and GFS2 needs to use some of the space allocated earlier in the grow to
complete it. Now, if GFS2 fails to reserve the necessary space and the rindex
file is not uptodate, it rereads it. Also, the only difference between
gfs2_ri_update() and gfs2_ri_update_special() was that gfs2_ri_update_special()
didn't clear out the existing resource groups, since you knew that it was only
called when there were no resource groups. Attempting to clear out the
resource groups when there are none takes almost no time, and rarely happens,
so I simply removed gfs2_ri_update_special().

This version applies cleanly against Steve's latest nmw tree.
