I'd have to take a look at a patch, but I didn't think there would be
enough code to be worth factoring out into a separate function.  It's
just a conditional, a call to ext4_error(), and then setting up the
return code and releasing resources that need to be released on our
way out (which tends to be function-specific).

Am I missing something?
