The indirect blocks reservation test originally reproduced a problem
with smaller delalloc extents being split into separate extents with
insufficient indlen blocks. This was ultimately resolved by allowing to
borrow blocks from the freed extent.

Since then, similar problems have been reproduced when larger delalloc
extents are repeatedly split and merged with new writes. These repeated
splits exposed a problem in the old indlen reservation split algorithm
when dealing with extents that are already under-reserved from previous
splits. This resulted in unfair distribution of existing reservation and
fairly large delalloc extents without any indlen reservation whatsoever.

Enhance the original indlen reservation test to include a pattern that
reproduces this behavior.
