A problem was found in this patch:

I attached the revised version below. Could you replace the patch
titled `ext3: abort ext3 if the journal has aborted' with this
new one? Please note that the patch's title also changed.


Subject: [PATCH 3/4] ext3: add checks for errors from jbd

If the journal has aborted due to a checkpointing failure, we
have to keep the contents of the journal space. Otherwise, the
filesystem will lose uncheckpointed metadata completely and
become inconsistent. To avoid this, we need to keep needs_recovery
flag if checkpoint has failed.

With this patch, ext3_put_super() detects a checkpointing failure
from the return value of journal_destroy(), then it invokes
ext3_abort() to make the filesystem read only and keep
needs_recovery flag. Errors from journal_flush() are also handled
by this patch in some places.
