Benny, Fred, Hi.

This patch is from the pnfsblock branch:
	[0e5ef56b] pnfs: let layoutcommit code handle multiple segments
		   by: Peng Tao<bergwolf@gmail.com>

Except the above patch has one obvious bug where segments are not found
(See below)

Fred I'm not sure I like this patch it looks wrong to me. But it does
solve my immediate problem (Needed for this Kernel). Have you had a
chance to look at this code and think about what we should do?

SQUASHME: Fix BUG in: [0e5ef56b] pnfs: let layoutcommit code handle multiple segments

The patch: [0e5ef56b] pnfs: let layoutcommit code handle multiple segments
Broke pnfs_find_lseg because now with the new break, the smaller then last layouts
are never found.
(Though I agree that searching in reverse might be an optimization since the
 last one is usually what we need. (Perhaps reverse the offset test))
