Subject[17/42] ext3: Dont warn from writepage when readonly inode is spotted after error
3.1-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Jan Kara <jack@suse.cz>

commit 33c104d415e92a51aaf638dc3d93920cfa601e5c upstream.

WARN_ON_ONCE(IS_RDONLY(inode)) tends to trip when filesystem hits error and is
remounted read-only. This unnecessarily scares users (well, they should be
scared because of filesystem error, but the stack trace distracts them from the
right source of their fear ;-). We could as well just remove the WARN_ON but
it's not hard to fix it to not trip on filesystem with errors and not use more
cycles in the common case so that's what we do.
