Subject: [PATCH v3 0/2] fix error flag covered by journal recovery

From: Ye Bin <yebin10@...wei.com>

Diff v3 Vs v2:
Only fix fs error flag lost when previous journal errno is not record
in disk. As this may lead to drop orphan list, however fs not record
error flag, then fsck will not repair deeply.

Diff v2 vs v1:
Move call 'j_replay_prepare_callback' and 'j_replay_end_callback' from
ext4_load_journal() to jbd2_journal_recover().

When do fault injection test, got issue as follows:
EXT4-fs (dm-5): warning: mounting fs with errors, running e2fsck is recommended
EXT4-fs (dm-5): Errors on filesystem, clearing orphan list.
EXT4-fs (dm-5): recovery complete
EXT4-fs (dm-5): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: data_err=abort,errors=remount-ro

EXT4-fs (dm-5): recovery complete
EXT4-fs (dm-5): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: data_err=abort,errors=remount-ro

Without do file system check, file system is clean when do second mount.
Theoretically, the kernel will not clear fs error flag. In errors=remount-ro
mode the last super block is commit directly. So super block in journal is
not uptodate. When do jounral recovery, the uptodate super block will be
covered by jounral data. If super block submit all failed after recover
journal, then file system error flag is lost. When do "fsck -a" couldn't
repair file system deeply.
To solve above issue we need to do extra handle when do super block journal
recovery.


Ye Bin (2):
  ext4: commit super block if fs record error when journal record
    without error
  ext4: make sure fs error flag setted before clear journal error
