Subject: [PATCH -next v5 2/3] 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.
