This patch needs to go earlier in the series - just after patch 2.
Otherwise the read_mmp_block() cleanup is not correct. Otherwise it looks
good, just some language corrections:

ext4: remove useless bh_check variable

Since we initialize 'bh_check' to NULL and pass it to read_mmp_block(), that
function will just call sb_getblk() which will just return the buffer_head
we have in 'bh'. So just remove the pointless 'bh_check' variable and use
'bh' directly.

With this fixed feel free to add:
