Thank you for submitting this patch, but it should not be accepted.

The commit message is confusing, since the code being changed relates
to retval from write_mmp_block().  That currently returns 1, but
only until your next patch is applied.

I think it is better to fix write_mmp_block() as in your next patch
to return a negative value to be more consistent with other code.

Cheers, Andreas
