SubjectRe: Bad ext3/nfs DoS bug

Like this?

Avoid triggering ext3_error on bad NFS file handle

The inode number out of an NFS file handle gets passed
eventually to ext3_get_inode_block without any checking.
If ext3_get_inode_block allows it to trigger a error,
then bad filehandles can have unpleasant effect.

So remove the call to ext3_error there and put a matching
check in ext3/namei.c where inode numbers are read of storage.
