Subject: [PATCH 2/5] jbd: ordered data integrity fix

Subject: [PATCH 2/5] jbd: ordered data integrity fix

In ordered mode, if a buffer being dirtied exists in the committing
transaction, we write the buffer to the disk, move it from the
committing transaction to the running transaction, then dirty it.
But we don't have to remove the buffer from the committing
transaction when the buffer couldn't be written out, otherwise it
would miss the error and the committing transaction would not abort.

This patch adds an error check before removing the buffer from the
committing transaction.
