Subject: ext4/balloc.c:read_block_bitmap(): inconsequent NULL checking

Commit 7c9e69faa28027913ee059c285a5ea8382e24b5d results in the following 
inconsequent NULL checking in fs/ext4/balloc.c:

<--  snip  -->

struct buffer_head *
read_block_bitmap(struct super_block *sb, unsigned int block_group)
        if (!bh)
                ext4_error (sb, __FUNCTION__,
                            "Cannot read block bitmap - "
                            "block_group = %d, block_bitmap = %llu",
                            block_group, bitmap_blk);

        /* check whether block bitmap block number is set */
        if (!block_in_use(bitmap_blk, sb, bh->b_data)) {
...                                       ^^^^^^^^^^

<--  snip  -->

        of the darkness. There had been need of rain for many days.
       "Only a promise," Lao Er said.
