Btrfs: increase the size of the free space cache
Arne was complaining about the space cache having mismatching generation numbers when debugging a deadlock. This is because we can run out of space in our preallocated range for our space cache if you have a pretty fragmented amount of space in your pinned space. So just increase the amount of space we preallocate for space cache so we can be sure to have enough space. This will only really affect data ranges since their the only chunks that end up larger than 256MB.
