ext3: fix broken handling of EXT3_STATE_NEW
In commit 9df93939b735 ("ext3: Use bitops to read/modify EXT3_I(inode)->i_state") ext3 changed its internal 'i_state' variable to use bitops for its state handling. However, unline the same ext4 change, it didn't actually change the name of the field when it changed the semantics of it. As a result, an old use of 'i_state' remained in fs/ext3/ialloc.c that initialized the field to EXT3_STATE_NEW. And that does not work _at_all_ when we're now working with individually named bits rather than values that get masked. So the code tried to mark the state to be new, but in actual fact set the field to EXT3_STATE_JDATA. Which makes no sense at all, and screws up all the code that checks whether the inode was newly allocated. In particular, it made the xattr code unhappy, and caused various random behavior, like apparently https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=577911 So fix the initialization, and rename the field to match ext4 so that we don't have this happen again.
