We definitely shouldn't be adding "BUG()" or "BUG_ON()" to active code, but
rather call ext4_error() and let the admin to set "errors=panic" if they
want this action, or leave "errors=remount-ro" (which is the default these
days) and just return an error to userspace.

Looking at the nearby code, it is using pr_warn("ES insert assertion failed..."
instead of using an actual assertion for the failure cases.

I guess a saving grace is that this code is only enabled if ES_AGGRESSIVE_TEST
is defined, which it is not by default, so probably it is only when some
developer is testing this code. So using BUG() is probably OK in this case.

Cheers, Andreas
