Subject: ext4: fix reference counting bug on block allocation error
commit 554a5ccc4e4a20c5f3ec859de0842db4b4b9c77e upstream.
If we hit this error when mounted with errors=continue or
errors=remount-ro:
EXT4-fs error (device loop0): ext4_mb_mark_diskspace_used:2940: comm ext4.exe: Allocating blocks 5090-6081 which overlap fs metadata
then ext4_mb_new_blocks() will call ext4_mb_release_context() and try to
continue. However, ext4_mb_release_context() is the wrong thing to call
here since we are still actually using the allocation context.
Instead, just error out. We could retry the allocation, but there is a
possibility of getting stuck in an infinite loop instead, so this seems
safer.
[ Fixed up so we don't return EAGAIN to userspace. --tytso ]
Fixes: 8556e8f3b6 ("ext4: Don't allow new groups to be added during block allocation")
