Default GFS2: deallocation performance patch

From: Bob Peterson <rpeterso@redhat.com>

This patch is a performance improvement to GFS2's dealloc code.
Rather than update the quota file and statfs file for every
single block that's stripped off in unlink function do_strip,
this patch keeps track and updates them once for every layer
that's stripped. This is done entirely inside the existing
transaction, so there should be no risk of corruption.
The other functions that deallocate blocks will be unaffected
because they are using wrapper functions that do the same
thing that they do today.

I tested this code on my roth cluster by creating 200
files in a directory, each of which is 100MB, then on
four nodes, I simultaneously deleted the files, thus competing
for GFS2 resources (but different files). The commands
I used were:

[root@roth-01]# time for i in `seq 1 4 200` ; do rm /mnt/gfs2/bigdir/gfs2.$i; done
[root@roth-02]# time for i in `seq 2 4 200` ; do rm /mnt/gfs2/bigdir/gfs2.$i; done
[root@roth-03]# time for i in `seq 3 4 200` ; do rm /mnt/gfs2/bigdir/gfs2.$i; done
[root@roth-05]# time for i in `seq 4 4 200` ; do rm /mnt/gfs2/bigdir/gfs2.$i; done

The performance increase was significant:

roth-01 roth-02 roth-03 roth-05
--------- --------- --------- ---------
old: real 0m34.027 0m25.021s 0m23.906s 0m35.646s
new: real 0m22.379s 0m24.362s 0m24.133s 0m18.562s

Total time spent deleting:
old: 118.6s
new: 89.4

For this particular case, this showed a 25% performance increase for
GFS2 unlinks.
