If this fails or not depends on implementation details of
clear_extent_bits and this comment will get out of sync eventually, so I
don't think it should be that specific.

If the new_size is somewhere in the middle of an existing state, it'll
need to be split anyway, no?

alloc_state |-----+++++|
clear             |------------------------- ... (u64)-1|

So we'd need to keep the state "-" and unset bits only from "+", and
this will require a split.

But I still have doubts about just clearing the range, why are there any
device->alloc_state entries at all after device is shrunk? Using
clear_extent_bits here is not wrong if we look at the end result of
clearing the range, but otherwise it leaves some state information
and allocated memory behind.
