Subject: [PATCH] ext3: don't try to resize if there are no reserved gdt blocks left


When trying to resize a ext3 fs and you run out of reserved gdt blocks, you get
an error that doesn't actually tell you what went wrong, it just says that the
gdb it picked is not correct, which is the case since you don't have any
reserved gdt blocks left. This patch adds a check to make sure you have
reserved gdt blocks to use, and if not prints out a more relevant error. Thank
