Source kernel commit: 02092a2f034fdeabab524ae39c2de86ba9ffa15a

A rename operation is essentially a directory entry remove operation
from the perspective of parent directory (i.e. src_dp) of rename's
source. Hence the only place where we check for extent count overflow
for src_dp is in xfs_bmap_del_extent_real(). xfs_bmap_del_extent_real()
returns -ENOSPC when it detects a possible extent count overflow and in
response, the higher layers of directory handling code do the following:
1. Data/Free blocks: XFS lets these blocks linger until a future remove
operation removes them.
2. Dabtree blocks: XFS swaps the blocks with the last block in the Leaf
space and unmaps the last block.

For target_dp, there are two cases depending on whether the destination
directory entry exists or not.

When destination directory entry does not exist (i.e. target_ip ==
NULL), extent count overflow check is performed only when transaction
has a non-zero sized space reservation associated with it.  With a
zero-sized space reservation, XFS allows a rename operation to continue
only when the directory has sufficient free space in its data/leaf/free
space blocks to hold the new entry.

When destination directory entry exists (i.e. target_ip != NULL), all
we need to do is change the inode number associated with the already
existing entry. Hence there is no need to perform an extent count
overflow check.
