Can you fix the inconsistent return for the trylock case in a follow on
patch?  This difference doesn't look intentional to me, and I would
be surprised if it's correctly handled in the callers.

Ok, I'll do an audit and make this common in a follow up patch. Just
to confirm:

                if (!(flags & XBF_TRYLOCK))
                        return -ENOMEM;
                return -EAGAIN;

is what you want to see, right?


Even ENOMEM / EAGAIN could be wrong if _xfs_buf_find() was given an illegal block number - then it would be EFSCORRUPT.

I think we need to push the error message from _xfs_buf_find(). I played with it once and seemed to have lost it and can do it again if no one else has the time.
