This doesn’t work, because it is possible that we don’t set any bit for the flags passed in.
Or we could change it to:

If (flags & (EXT4_GROUP_INFO_IBITMAP_CORRUPT | EXT4_GROUP_INFO_BBITMAP_CORRUPT) && !ret)
       return 1;
else
      return 0;

Instead of something like this, introduced another bool value looks more readable?
