[PATCH] ext3: avoid triggering ext3_error on bad NFS file handle



The inode number out of an NFS file handle gets passed eventually to
ext3_get_inode_block() without any checking.  If ext3_get_inode_block()
allows it to trigger an error, then bad filehandles can have unpleasant
effect - ext3_error() will usually cause a forced read-only remount, or a
panic if `errors=panic' was used.

So remove the call to ext3_error there and put a matching check in
ext3/namei.c where inode numbers are read off storage.
