Theodore Ts'o - July 28, 2011, 1:21 a.m.
From: Yongqiang Yang <xiaoqiangnk@gmail.com>

add_new_gdb() only needs the block group number; there is no need to
pass a pointer to struct ext4_new_group_data to add_new_gdb().
Instead of filling in a pointer the struct buffer_head in
add_new_gdb(), it's simpler to have the caller fetch it from the
s_group_desc[] array.

[Fixed error path to handle the case where struct buffer_head *primary
 hasn't been set yet. -- Ted]

Applied to the ext4 tree, with a bug fix to prevent a null pointer
dereference if add_new_gdb() returns an error.
