'ext4_finish_bio' already call 'mapping_set_error' set mapping error , I think fsync
and sync_filesystem can report IO error.

static inline void mapping_set_error(struct address_space *mapping, int error)
{
         if (likely(!error))
                 return;

         /* Record in wb_err for checkers using errseq_t based tracking */
         __filemap_set_wb_err(mapping, error);

         /* Record it in superblock */
         if (mapping->host)
                 errseq_set(&mapping->host->i_sb->s_wb_err, error);

         /* Record it in flags for now, for legacy callers */
         if (error == -ENOSPC)
                 set_bit(AS_ENOSPC, &mapping->flags);
         else
                 set_bit(AS_EIO, &mapping->flags);
}
