md/raid5: fix bug in reshape code when chunk_size decreases. Now that we support changing the chunksize, we calculate "reshape_sectors" to be the max of number of sectors in old and new chunk size. However there is one please where we still use 'chunksize' rather than 'reshape_sectors'. This causes a reshape that reduces the size of chunks to freeze. Signed-off-by: NeilBrown <[email protected]>
