As Shah said, the superblock is always written at a offset 1024. When
the block size is 4096, offset 1024 is in the first block (block 0),
while the block size is 1024, offset 1024 is in the second block (block
1).

Since group descriptor locates after superblock, so Group 0 starts from
1 when the block size is 1024 byte.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.
