    ext4: Fix fiemap() with FIEMAP_FLAG_CACHE flag
    This flag says to cache extents in extent tree before iterations over
    them, but the combination of these two actions does not work.
    ext4_ext_precache() populates cache, but extent iteration can't occur,
    since fiemap_check_flags() does not know this flag.
    So, the result of this flag is:
      1)cache is populated,
      2)-EBADR is returned instead of extents array.
    This looks like a BUG in mainstream, which was blindly fixed in commit
    bb5835edcdf8bf7 "ext4: add new ioctl EXT4_IOC_GET_ES_CACHE".
    This patch makes the flag to work as expected.
