* When a filesystem is unable to read an inode due to an I/O error in
* its read_inode() function, it can call make_bad_inode() to return a
* set of stubs which will return EIO errors as required.
* We only need to do limited initialisation: all other fields are
* preinitialised to zero automatically.
* make_bad_inode - mark an inode bad due to an I/O error
* @inode: Inode to mark bad
* When an inode cannot be read due to a media or remote network
* failure this function makes the inode "bad" and causes I/O operations
* on it to fail from this point on.

* This tests whether an inode has been flagged as bad. The test uses
* &bad_inode_ops to cover the case of invalidated inodes as well as
* those created by make_bad_inode() above.
* is_bad_inode - is an inode errored
* @inode: inode to test
* Returns true if the inode in question has been marked as bad.
