I think its a bogus warning.

ext3_getblk() is calling ext3_get_blocks_handle() to map "1" block for
read. But for *some* reason ext3_get_blocks_handle() more than 1 block.
ext3_get_blocks_handle() return "positive #of blocks" is a valid case.
So needs to be fixed.

I did search for callers of ext3_get_blocks_handle() and found that
ext3_readdir() seems to do wrong thing all the time with error check :(
Need to take a closer look..

err = ext3_get_blocks_handle(NULL, inode, blk, 1,
&map_bh, 0, 0);
if (err > 0) { <<<< BAD
map_bh.b_blocknr >>
(PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT - inode->i_blkbits),
bh = ext3_bread(NULL, inode, blk, 0, &err);
