Hum, I'm not sure I follow here. If journal replay has overwritten the
superblock (and thus the stored error info), then I'd expect
es->s_error_count got overwritten (possibly to 0) as well. And this is
actually relatively realistic scenario with errors=remount-ro behavior when
the first fs error happens.

What I intended in my original suggestion was to save es->s_error_count,
es->s_state & EXT4_ERROR_FS, es->s_first_error_*, es->s_last_error_* before
doing journal replay in ext4_load_journal() and then after journal replay
merge this info back to the superblock - if EXT4_ERROR_FS was set, set it
now as well, take max of old and new s_error_count, set s_first_error_* if
it is now unset, set s_last_error_* if stored timestamp is newer than
current timestamp.

Or am I overengineering it now? :)
