From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Tue Jul 15 2014 - 19:47:09 EST

3.14-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Theodore Ts'o <tytso@xxxxxxx>

commit 94d4c066a4ff170a2671b1a9b153febbf36796f6 upstream.

We are spending a lot of time explaining to users what this error
means. Let's try to improve the message to avoid this problem.
