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

I checked rest of the ext4 sources to make sure we return properly after ext4_error.
I guess i have taken care of all the places.

Subject: [PATCH] ext4: Return after ext4_error in case of failures

This fix some instances where we were continuing
after marking the file system errors.
Even though ext4_error mark the file system read only
and panic depending on mount option it is good
to handle the return properly.
