--- Comment #9 from Fabian Keil <fk at fabiankeil.de> ---
I agree that moving the n calculation behind the error block
is technically sufficient to prevent the panic.

I added the NULL check in front of the brelse() because the function
contains a comment that indicates that passing NULL to it is considered

My assumption was that the brelse() was there for a reason and that bp
would sometimes not be NULL or at least could be in the future.

cluster_read() and bread*() indeed seem to reliably reset bp to NULL
on error, but unlike breadn_flags(), cluster_read() has no comment that
explicitly mentions this, so I wasn't sure that one can depend on this

If the behaviour is unlikely to change in the future, I agree that the
brelse() should be removed.
