Subject: [PATCH] ext3: Change the default behaviour on error

ext3 file system was by default ignoring errors
and continuing. This is not a good default as
continuing on error could lead to file system
corruption. Change the default to mark the file
system readonly. Debian and ubuntu already does
this as the default in their fstab.
