While running xfstests with compression on I noticed I was panicing on
btrfs/154.  I bisected this down to my inc_block_group_ro patches, which
was strange.

What was happening is with my patches we now use btrfs_can_overcommit()
to see if we can flip a block group read only.  Before this would fail
because we weren't taking into account the usable un-allocated space for
allocating chunks.  With my patches we were allowed to do the balance,
which is technically correct.

However this test is testing restriping with a degraded mount, something
that isn't working right because Anand's fix for the test was never
actually merged.

So now we're trying to allocate a chunk and cannot because we want to
allocate a RAID1 chunk, but there's only 1 device that's available for
usage.  This results in an ENOSPC in one of the BUG_ON(ret) paths in
relocation (and a tricky path that is going to take many more patches to

But we shouldn't even be making it this far, we don't have enough
devices to restripe.  The problem is we're using btrfs_num_devices(),
which for some reason includes missing devices.  That's not actually
what we want, we want the rw_devices.

Fix this by getting the rw_devices.  With this patch we're no longer
panicing with my other patches applied, and we're in fact erroring out
at the correct spot instead of at inc_block_group_ro.  The fact that
this was working before was just sheer dumb luck.
