Clement Lecigne reports a filesystem which causes a kernel oops
in hfs_find_init() trying to dereference sb->ext_tree which is NULL.

This proves to be because the filesystem has a corrupted MDB extent record,
where the extents file does not fit into the first three extents in
the file record (the first blocks).

In hfs_get_block() when looking up the blocks for the extent file
(HFS_EXT_CNID), it fails the first blocks special case, and falls through
to the extent code (which ultimately calls hfs_find_init()) which is
in the process of being initialised.

Hfs avoids this scenario by always having the extents b-tree
fitting into the first blocks (the extents B-tree can't have overflow
extents).

The fix is to check at mount time that the B-tree fits into first blocks,
i.e. fail if HFS_I(inode)->alloc_blocks >= HFS_I(inode)->first_blocks

Note, the existing commit 47f365eb575735c6b2edf5d08e0d16d26a9c23bd
becomes subsumed into this as a special case, but only for the
extents B-tree (HFS_EXT_CNID), it is perfectly acceptable for the catalog
B-Tree file to grow beyond three extents, with the remaining extent
descriptors in the extents overfow.

This fixes CVE-2011-2203
