Series ext4: fix inconsistency since async write metadata buffer error | expand

Commit Message

zhangyi (F) June 20, 2020, 2:54 a.m. UTC
If we free a metadata buffer which has been failed to async write out
in the background, the jbd2 checkpoint procedure will not detect this
failure in jbd2_log_do_checkpoint(), so it may lead to filesystem
inconsistency after cleanup journal tail. This patch abort the journal
if free a buffer has write_io_error flag to prevent potential further
inconsistency.
