The main failure mode for link_free_space() is -EEXIST, which means
there is already free space in the cache.

Here EEXIST may not be a big problem, and we may really want to continue
the iteration other than error out.


Would you explain in details about why you believe error out is the
correct way other than current continue behavior?

Thanks,
