I'm not sure what you ar asking, since I can't quite parse your
question as a valid english sentence, sorry.

I think what you are asking is why is this function always returning

That's because it's in the #else clause of an #ifdef
CONFIG_EXT4_FS_ENCRYPTION.  In the case where
CONFIG_EXT4_FS_ENCRYPTION is defined, it returns:

static inline struct ext4_crypt_info *ext4_encryption_info(struct inode *inode)
	return EXT4_I(inode)->i_crypt_info;

The idea is to minimize the need for #ifdef's in the .c files.
