bcache: add failure check to run_cache_set() for journal replay
Currently run_cache_set() has no return value, if there is failure in bch_journal_replay(), the caller of run_cache_set() has no idea about such failure and just continue to execute following code after run_cache_set(). The internal failure is triggered inside bch_journal_replay() and being handled in async way. This behavior is inefficient, while failure handling inside bch_journal_replay(), cache register code is still running to start the cache set. Registering and unregistering code running as same time may introduce some rare race condition, and make the code to be more hard to be understood. This patch adds return value to run_cache_set(), and returns -EIO if bch_journal_rreplay() fails. Then caller of run_cache_set() may detect such failure and stop registering code flow immedidately inside register_cache_set(). If journal replay fails, run_cache_set() can report error immediately to register_cache_set(). This patch makes the failure handling for bch_journal_replay() be in synchronized way, easier to understand and debug, and avoid poetential race condition for register-and-unregister in same time.
