Subject[PATCH] ext4: handle corrupted orphan list at mount
Date
If the orphan node list includes valid, untruncatable nodes with nlink > 0
the ext4_orphan_cleanup loop which attempts to delete them will not do so,
causing it to loop forever. Fix by checking for such nodes in the
ext4_orphan_get function.

This patch fixes the second case (image hdb.20000009.softlockup.gz)
reported in http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10882.
