Subject: Re: [PATCH 18/21] ext4: remove unnecessary goto in ext4_mb_mark_diskspace_used

bitmap_bh is a local pointer variable. So not setting it to NULL is not
a problem. I guess for consistency in return error code paths the author
would have kept it this way, but since this is the first return from the
function in case of an error, hence it looks ok if we simply call
return PTR_ERR(bitmap_bh), rather than a goto out_err.

Hence this looks good to me. Feel free to add -
