[PATCH 0/2] [Jaunty] UBUNTU: ext4: Print the find_group_flex() warning only once

SRU Justification:

Impact: In Jaunty, the syslog is getting flooded with "ext4:
find_group_flex failed, fallback succeeded dir" messages that could
result in the logs filling up.

Fix: Backport two simple patches to print the find_group_flex() warning
only once

Testcase: Install and run a default Jaunty kernel and confirm that the
logs may sometimes fill with repeated warnings of "ext4: find_group_flex
failed, fallback succeeded dir". Reinstall with a patched Jaunty kernel
and this warning should only appear once.
