No, you're right. This and the other pattern is sprayed throughout the
patchset, but also possibly throughout some of the other chunks of
EXT4 code (I think), which I haven't touched here. So, my thought
process was to actually introduce a small separate cleanup patchset
that does exactly that i.e. moves out these duplicate chunks
orphan_add/orphan_del into small helpers.
