isofs_read_inode() failing, about to do make_bad_inode()

struct dentry *d_splice_alias(struct inode *inode, struct dentry *dentry)
struct dentry *new = NULL;

if (inode && S_ISDIR(inode->i_mode)) {

with inode equal to (struct inode *)-5. Which is ERR_PTR(-EIO)...

inode = NULL;
if (found) {
inode = isofs_iget(dir->i_sb, block, offset);
if (!inode) {
return ERR_PTR(-EACCES);
return d_splice_alias(inode, dentry);

So we've got ERR_PTR(-EIO) from isofs_iget(). Bloody odd, seeing that
isofs_iget() either explicitly returns NULL or does

if (inode && (inode->i_state & I_NEW)) {

return inode;

which would not manage to return ERR_PTR(-EIO), no matter what - it would
die on access to inode->i_state. I don't have -mm tree at hand, check if
there's anything affected in these areas. Perhaps somebody tried to pass
error values from isofs_iget() and forgot to update callers?
