The BUG_ON is:
BUG_ON(len >= EXT4_BLOCKS_PER_GROUP(sb));
As the allocation of the bitmaps and the inode table can be done
outside the block group with flex_bg, this allows to allocate up to
EXT4_BLOCKS_PER_GROUP blocks in a group.
Caution is needed here. In the past we were limited to BLOCKS_PER_GROUP()
blocks per extent (32768 blocks at most, regardless of blocksize I think)
but now an extent might be larger.
Can you please verify that the extent-length limits for "initialized" vs.
"uninitialized" extents are being hit so that extents don't accidentally
grow to be > 32768 blocks long and suddenly get marked as short uninitialized
Note that the assertion can still be hit if groups are created with fewer
blocks, or with blocksize < 4096. For example, if we have blocksize = 1024
this gives BLOCKS_PER_GROUP=8192, but an extent can be up to 32768 blocks.
I think the right assertion is now:
BUG_ON(len > EXT4_INIT_MAX_LEN);
if FLEX_BG is active. I'm not sure if we want to keep the stricter assertion:
BUG_ON(len > EXT4_HAS_INCOMPAT_FEATURE_FLEX_BG(sb) ? EXT4_INIT_MAX_LEN :
but it might be worthwhile at least initially, and I don't think the CPU cost
is very high.
I agree. I'll do the changes.

Please separate this into two BUG_ON() statements, so it is clear which
one is being hit.
Thanks for review,
