Btrfs: Check for NULL page in extent_range_uptodate
A user has encountered a NULL pointer kernel oops in btrfs when encountering media errors. The problem has been identified as an unhandled NULL pointer returned from find_get_page(). This modification simply checks for a NULL page, and returns with an error if found (the extent_range_uptodate() function returns 1 on errors). After testing this patch, the user reported that the error with the NULL pointer oops was solved. However, there is still a remaining problem with a thread becoming stuck in wait_on_page_locked(page) in the read_extent_buffer_pages(...) function in extent_io.c for (i = start_i; i < num_pages; i++) { page = extent_buffer_page(eb, i); wait_on_page_locked(page); if (!PageUptodate(page)) ret = -EIO; } This patch leaves the issue with the locked page yet to be resolved.
