Subject: [PATCH] ocfs2: Should error return be negative?

Return a negative error value instead of a positive

The return of a positive error is unusual for oracle:

[roel@...nx linux-git]$ git grep -n -E "return E[[:upper:]]*;" -- fs/ocfs2/ | wc -l
[roel@...nx linux-git]$ git grep -n -E "return -E[[:upper:]]*;" -- fs/ocfs2/ | wc -l

is this maybe required?
