I think the WARN_ON() can go away as well.
The only possible error is -EEXIST, coming from tree_insert_offset().
When that happens tree_insert_offset() already emits a warning.

Also, the free space entry needs to be freed, otherwise we leak
memory. So it should be something like this:

if (ret) {
kmem_cache_free(btrfs_free_space_cachep, info);
goto out_unlock;
}

Further the subject should be prefixed with "btrfs: " and not "fs: ",
since this is a btrfs specific patch.
Something like the following for example:

"btrfs: add missing error handling when removing free space"

Thanks.
