The reason I added the randomness on these values is the segment
selection in SSR mode.
If all the segments have the same free block counts, f2fs will
allocate a new segment sequentially in SSR.
This was what I didn't want. Plus, in the real world, the size of hole
and chunk will be different in different segments.

But, if you think we need this "fragment:fixed_block" mode, I am happy
to have it. :)

Oh, I overlooked that point. I am going to add the variable for each
segment as you said before.
