ocfs2: Count more refcount records in file system fragmentation.
The refcount record calculation in ocfs2_calc_refcount_meta_credits is too optimistic that we can always allocate contiguous clusters and handle an already existed refcount rec as a whole. Actually because of file system fragmentation, we may have the chance to split a refcount record into 3 parts during the transaction. So consider the worst case in record calculation.
