Subject: [PATCH 1/4] ext4: Use return value from sb_issue_discard()

Use return value from sb_issue_discard() as return value in
ext4_issue_discard(). Since sb_issue_discard() may result in more
serious errors than just -EOPNOTSUPP it is worth to inform user of this
function about them to handle error cases properly.
