index entry is in the index root, we forgot to set the @ir pointer in
the index context. Thanks to Yura Pakhuchiy for finding this bug.
- Remove bogus setting of PageError in ntfs_read_compressed_block().
- Add fs/ntfs/attrib.[hc]::ntfs_resident_attr_value_resize().
2.1.23 - Implement extension of resident files and make writing safe as well as
many bug fixes, cleanups, and enhancements...
