It's good to me. I fixed it. Thanks!


Subject: [PATCH] jbd: don't abort if flushing file data failed

In ordered mode, the current jbd aborts the journal if a file data
buffer has an error. But this behavior is unintended, and we found
that it has been adopted accidentally.

This patch undoes it and just calls printk() instead of aborting
the journal. Additionally, set AS_EIO into the address_space
object of the failed buffer which is submitted by
journal_do_submit_data() so that fsync() can get -EIO.

Missing error checkings are also added to inform errors on file
data buffers to the user. The following buffers are targeted.

(a) the buffer which has already been written out by pdflush
(b) the buffer which has been unlocked before scanned in the
t_locked_list loop
