Subject: ext4_readdir ignores filldir error code


I noticed following in ext4_readdir() and in other file systems..

filldir returns error in "error":
       error = filldir(dirent, de->name, ...)

But function itself returns "ret"

What I can see is that when filldir fails, ext4_readir quits, but with
no error....
       while (!error && !stored && filp->f_pos < inode->i_size) {

Is it by design or an error?
