ext4: Retry block allocation if new blocks are allocated from system zone.
If the block allocator gets blocks out of system zone ext4 calls ext4_error. But if the file system is mounted with errors=continue retry block allocation. We need to mark the system zone blocks as in use to make sure retry don't pick them again System zone is the block range mapping block bitmap, inode bitmap and inode table.
