[PATCH 3.12 196/206] rbd: Fix error recovery in rbd_obj_read_sync()

From: Jiri Slaby

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


commit a8d4205623ae965e36c68629db306ca0695a2771 upstream.

When we fail to allocate page vector in rbd_obj_read_sync() we just
basically ignore the problem and continue which will result in an oops
later. Fix the problem by returning proper error.
