Thanks for the patch but it is not correct. A proper fix for this syzbot
reproducer is to add more sanity checking into quota code to verify quota
file headers are not corrupted. Because these corrupted headers cause bogus
return values from get_free_blk() and possibly other quota functions which
then confuse __dquot_initialize().
