Argh, indeed. I thought the 32-bit bitfields also have the bitmap_ops
field (and in the same offset), but they don't.

Right, that's quite bogus. The !bitmap test should obviously be first,
not after we first dereference it. Then we should test for 64-bitness,
and only ever touch the bitmap_ops field if we have a 64-bit bitmap.

In addition to that, there are actually three different versions of
many operations; they are named ext2_foo_bmap(), ext2_foo_bitmap() and
ext2_foo_bitmap2(). I'm quite confused too.

While I suggest passing EXT2_FLAG_64BITS to ext2fs_open() - it should
never break anything and only makes things faster - the code obviously
shouldn't break when that is not passed.

(I wonder if it would make sense to have something like
EXT2_BASE_FLAGS that could include any flags which never hurt,
currently apparently only EXT2_FLAG_64BITS. From the name of the flag
EXT2_FLAG_64BITS it's not obvious that you should always use it. As
far as I understand correctly, it's there only for ABI compatibility
with code compiled before the flag was introduced and it never makes
sense to not pass it in any new code.)

The patch below unbreaks the code (well, at least resize2fs
modified to not pass EXT2_FLAG_64BITS) for me.

    Fix ext2fs_find_first_zero_generic_bmap() for 32-bit bitmaps.
    ext2fs_find_first_zero_generic_bmap() tries to handle old-style 32-bit
    bitmaps, but fails in several different ways.
    Fix the order of the (in)validity tests and the fallback code to never
    dereference the bitmap, as we don't know at that point if it's a
    32-bit bitmap or a 64-bitmap bitmap whose backend implementation does
    not support find_first_zero(). Use the generic bitop functions for
    everything instead.
