Subject: Re: [PATCH] ext4: if zeroout fails fall back to splitting the extent
 node

Hi,

Rethink about this problem. Should we consider other place which call 
ext4_issue_zeroout? Maybe it can trigger the problem too(in theory, not 
really happened)...

How about include follow patch which not only transfer ENOSPC to EIO. 
But also stop to overwrite the error return by ext4_ext_insert_extent in 
ext4_split_extent_at.

Besides, 308c57ccf431 ("ext4: if zeroout fails fall back to splitting 
the extent node") can work together with this patch.
