Subject[097/111] ext4: Fix optional-arg mount options
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Eric Sandeen <sandeen@redhat.com>

commit 15121c18a22ae483279f76dc9e554334b800d0f7 upstream.

We have 2 mount options, "barrier" and "auto_da_alloc" which may or
may not take a 1/0 argument. This causes the ext4 superblock mount
code to subtract uninitialized pointers and pass the result to
kmalloc, which results in very noisy failures.

Per Ted's suggestion, initialize the args struct so that
we know whether match_token() found an argument for the
option, and skip match_int() if not.

Also, return error (0) from parse_options if we thought
we found an argument, but match_int() Fails.
