Well, by this change you're actually reverting commit

d9f34504e6952e909a6932c5b2d1857716606380
	 ext4: ignore errors when issuing discards

which effectively reverts a30eec2a8.

Now I think that the way it is now is actually better than your
proposal for the reasons mentioned in the commit
d9f34504e6952e909a6932c5b2d1857716606380. However I think that the
discard errors should be logged nevertheless but not at the file
system level, but rather on block layer level if it is not done
already.

Thanks!
