In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

ext4: fix bug on in ext4_es_cache_extent as ext4_split_extent_at failed

We got follow bug_on when run fsstress with injecting IO fault:

This patch's modification is according to Jan Kara's suggestion in:
"I see. Now I understand your patch. Honestly, seeing how fragile is trying
to fix extent tree after split has failed in the middle, I would probably
go even further and make sure we fix the tree properly in case of ENOSPC
and EDQUOT (those are easily user triggerable).  Anything else indicates a
HW problem or fs corruption so I'd rather leave the extent tree as is and
don't try to fix it (which also means we will not create overlapping
