Theodore Ts'o - Feb. 9, 2013, 9:53 p.m.
In ext4_{create,mknod,mkdir,symlink}(), don't start the journal handle
until the inode has been succesfully allocated.  In order to do this,
we need to start the handle in the ext4_new_inode().  So create a new
variant of this function, ext4_new_inode_start_handle(), so the handle
can be created at the last possible minute, before we need to modify
the inode allocation bitmap block.

I've changed this to be:

			BUG_ON(nblocks <= 0);

... since nblocks should (obviously) never be negative.

Please use "NULL" instead of "0" for pointers.
