Yeah, you are right and this confused me. In your version
block_page_mkwrite() returns block_page_mkwrite_return(err1) in case of
error but 0 in case of success and the caller - ext4_page_mkwrite() - then
uses block_page_mkwrite_return() again if block_page_mkwrite() returned 0.
So I agree the code path I pointed out won't result in returning 0 instead
of VM_FAULT_LOCKED but the calling convention is really very confusing.

So this branch is definitely wrong but I somewhat doubt it's the one we've
taken - this can happen only in case of IO error.
