Subject: [PATCH] ext3: dirindex error pointer issues 

 - ext3_dx_find_entry() exit with out setting proper error pointer
 - do_split() exit with out setting proper error pointer
   it is realy painful because many callers contain folowing code:
           de = do_split(handle,dir, &bh, frame, &hinfo, &retval);
           if (!(de))
                        return retval;
           <<< WOW retval wasn't changed by do_split(), so caller failed
           <<< but return SUCCESS :)
 - Rearrange do_split() error path. Current error path is realy ugly, all
   this up and down jump stuff doesn't make code easy to understand.
