Subject[PATCH v4 2/2] buffer: record blockdev write errors in super_block that it backs
From: Jeff Layton <>

When syncing out a block device (a'la __sync_blockdev), any error
encountered will only be recorded in the bd_inode's mapping. When the
blockdev contains a filesystem however, we'd like to also record the
error in the super_block that's stored there.

Make mark_buffer_write_io_error also record the error in the
corresponding super_block when a writeback error occurs and the block
device contains a mounted superblock.
