Commit [cffe02] Maximize Restore History

libext2fs: strict inline data overwrite should not return ENOSPC

If we're doing a strict overwrite (same data size) of data in an
inline data file, we should be able to skip the size check. If the
in-core EA representation is fine but the on-disk EA is slightly
corrupt (this happens when fixing minor errors in an inline dir), the
ext2fs_xattr_inode_max_size() call, which reads the disk EA, can lead
us to think that there's no space when in reality there is no issue
with doing a strict overwrite.
