As Dan Carpenter has pointed out, we need to cast map->m_lblk to
loff_t, since m_lblk is 32 bits, and when this get shifted left by
blkbits, we could end up losing bits.

This transformation is not functionally identical.

The problem is that pos is not necessarily a multiple of the file
system blocksize. From below,

> + map.m_lblk = offset >> inode->i_blkbits;
> + map.m_len = EXT4_MAX_BLOCKS(count, offset, inode->i_blkbits);

So what previously was the starting offset of the overwrite, is now
offset shifted right by blkbits, and then shifted left back by blkbits.

So unless I'm missing something, this looks not quite right?
