Subject[PATCH 1/3] nilfs2: set the mapping error when calling SetPageError on writeback
In a later patch, we're going to want to make the fsync codepath not do
a TestClearPageError call as that can override the error set in the
address space. To do that though, we need to ensure that filesystems
that are relying on the PG_error bit for reporting writeback errors
also set an error in the address space.

The only place I've found that looks potentially problematic is this
spot in nilfs2. Ensure that it sets an error in the mapping in addition
to setting PageError.
