Subject: [PATCH v3 3/5] ext4: remove write io error check before read inode block

After we add async write error check in ext4_journal_get_write_access(),
we can remove the partial fix for filesystem inconsistency problem
caused by reading old data from disk, which in commit <9c83a923c67d>
"ext4: don't read inode block if the buffer has a write error".
