If ext4_fill_super() failed after extents status shrinker
has been registered, the shrinker is left in a global list
while the memory, it sits in, is already freed.
Oops is not so bad scenario after that.

Found by Linux File System Verification project (linuxtesting.org).

Thanks for your patch.  This problem has been fixed in dev branch of
ext4 tree, but has not push into mainline kernel yet.  Here is the
commit id (a75ae78f087f933ab3432e98bb4dbbf2196cf6d5).

Thanks,
						- Zheng
