[PATCH 4.9 53/64] btrfs: propagate error to btrfs_cmp_data_prepare caller

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Tue Oct 03 2017 - 09:00:58 EST

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


From: Naohiro Aota <naohiro.aota@xxxxxxx>

commit 78ad4ce014d025f41b8dde3a81876832ead643cf upstream.

btrfs_cmp_data_prepare() (almost) always returns 0 i.e. ignoring errors
from gather_extent_pages(). While the pages are freed by
btrfs_cmp_data_free(), cmp->num_pages still has > 0. Then,
btrfs_extent_same() try to access the already freed pages causing faults
(or violates PageLocked assertion).

This patch just return the error as is so that the caller stop the process.
