Subject: [PATCH] e2fsck: skip sorting extents if there are no valid extents

From: Harshad Shirwadkar <>

At the end of a fast commit replay, e2fsck tries merging extents in a
inode. This patch fixes a bug in this logic where we were continuing
this action even if there were no extents to merge resulting in
accessing illegal memory.
