ext3: Don't warn from writepage when readonly inode is spotted after error
Jan Kara [Thu, 22 Dec 2011 15:49:05 +0000 (16:49 +0100)]
WARN_ON_ONCE(IS_RDONLY(inode)) tends to trip when filesystem hits error and is
remounted read-only. This unnecessarily scares users (well, they should be
scared because of filesystem error, but the stack trace distracts them from the
right source of their fear ;-). We could as well just remove the WARN_ON but
it's not hard to fix it to not trip on filesystem with errors and not use more
cycles in the common case so that's what we do.
