Subject: [PATCH] ext4: do not commit super on read-only bdev
commit c96e2b8564adfb8ac14469ebc51ddc1bfecb3ae2 upstream.
Under some circumstances we may encounter a filesystem error on a
read-only block device, and if we try to save the error info to the
superblock and commit it, we'll wind up with a noisy error and
backtrace, i.e.:
[ 3337.146838] EXT4-fs error (device pmem1p2): ext4_get_journal_inode:4634: comm mount: inode #0: comm mount: iget: illegal inode #
------------[ cut here ]------------
generic_make_request: Trying to write to read-only block-device pmem1p2 (partno 2)
WARNING: CPU: 107 PID: 115347 at block/blk-core.c:788 generic_make_request_checks+0x6b4/0x7d0
...
To avoid this, commit the error info in the superblock only if the
block device is writable.
