Subject[PATCH] f2fs: fix to avoid accessing uninitialized field of inode page in is_alive()
If inode is newly created, inode page may not synchronize with inode cache,
so fields like .i_inline or .i_extra_isize could be wrong, in below call
path, we may access such wrong fields, result in failing to migrate valid
target block.

- gc_data_segment
- is_alive
- datablock_addr
- offset_in_addr
