The patch titled
     jbd: fix error handling for checkpoint io
has been removed from the -mm tree.  Its filename was
     jbd-fix-error-handling-for-checkpoint-io.patch

This patch was dropped because it was merged into mainline or a subsystem tree

The current -mm tree may be found at http://userweb.kernel.org/~akpm/mmotm/

------------------------------------------------------
Subject: jbd: fix error handling for checkpoint io
From: Hidehiro Kawai <hidehiro.kawai.ez@hitachi.com>

When a checkpointing IO fails, current JBD code doesn't check the error
and continue journaling.  This means latest metadata can be lost from both
the journal and filesystem.

This patch leaves the failed metadata blocks in the journal space and
aborts journaling in the case of log_do_checkpoint().  To achieve this, we
need to do:

1. don't remove the failed buffer from the checkpoint list where in
   the case of __try_to_free_cp_buf() because it may be released or
   overwritten by a later transaction
2. log_do_checkpoint() is the last chance, remove the failed buffer
   from the checkpoint list and abort the journal
3. when checkpointing fails, don't update the journal super block to
   prevent the journaled contents from being cleaned.  For safety,
   don't update j_tail and j_tail_sequence either
4. when checkpointing fails, notify this error to the ext3 layer so
   that ext3 don't clear the needs_recovery flag, otherwise the
   journaled contents are ignored and cleaned in the recovery phase
5. if the recovery fails, keep the needs_recovery flag
6. prevent cleanup_journal_tail() from being called between
   __journal_drop_transaction() and journal_abort() (a race issue
   between journal_flush() and __log_wait_for_space()
