Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/1] ext4: fix hole punch failure when depth is greater
 than 0

I tried applying this patch, and it causes fsstress to die in xfstests
#13.  I took a quick look, but the truncate/punch codepaths are one of
the more obscure parts of ext4, and it's not obvious what causing the
null dereference, which at first glance looks like is coming from
path->b_bh->b_data.

Also, please note that commit descriptions should be wrapped around
70-72 columns, so that "git log" is reasonable to look at on 80 column
terminals.
