SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] fs: Convert return type int to vm_fault_t

I don't like returning both the errno and the vm_fault_t. To me that's a
sign we need to rethink this interface.

I have two suggestions. First, we could allocate a new VM_FAULT_NOSPC
bit. Second, we could repurpose one of the existing bits, such as
VM_FAULT_RETRY for this purpose.

I also think perhaps we could start by _not_ converting block_page_mkwrite().
Just convert ext4_page_mkwrite(), and save converting block_page_mkwrite()
for later.
