Btrfs: enforce metadata allocation clustering



The allocator uses the last allocation as a starting point for metadata
allocations, and tries to allocate in clusters of at least 256k.

If the search for a free block fails to find the expected block, this patch
forces a new cluster to be found in the free list.
