[dm-devel] Re: [PATCH] dm: fix freeze_bdev() return value check

I misunderstood the meaning of the return value of freeze_bdev().
I thought NULL returned by freeze_bdev means error. But it is wrong.
freeze_bdev returns NULL when there is no filesystem mounted on the
device with holding bd_mount_sem.
So this patch is totally broken.

But there is no reason to check the return value with IS_ERR().
Because freeze_bdev return NULL or valid super block
