ext4: fix error return from ext4_ext_handle_uninitialized_extents()
Eric Whitney [Wed, 19 Feb 2014 23:52:39 +0000 (18:52 -0500)]
commit ce37c42919608e96ade3748fe23c3062a0a966c5 upstream.

Commit 3779473246 breaks the return of error codes from
ext4_ext_handle_uninitialized_extents() in ext4_ext_map_blocks().  A
portion of the patch assigns that function's signed integer return
value to an unsigned int.  Consequently, negatively valued error codes
are lost and can be treated as a bogus allocated block count.
