Subjectext3 seems to ignore ECC errors
Hello,

I am having qemu report to its guest that a device is read-only (because
the backend format, file or device is) by returning ECC errors instead
of letting the guest believe that the writes went fine, see patch below.

However, to my surprise Linux (2.6.26) continued to mount the ext3
filesystem read/write, spitting out a lot of IDE errors. Shouldn't
filesystems remount read-only and let the admin try to save data in such
case?
