hfsplus: fix B-tree corruption after insertion at position 0
Fix B-tree corruption when a new record is inserted at position 0 in the node in hfs_brec_insert(). In this case a hfs_brec_update_parent() is called to update the parent index node (if exists) and it is passed hfs_find_data with a search_key containing a newly inserted key instead of the key to be updated. This results in an inconsistent index node. The bug reproduces on my machine after an extents overflow record for the catalog file (CNID=4) is inserted into the extents overflow B-tree. Because of a low (reserved) value of CNID=4, it has to become the first record in the first leaf node. The resulting first leaf node is correct: ---------------------------------------------------- | key0.CNID=4 | key1.CNID=123 | key2.CNID=456, ... | ---------------------------------------------------- But the parent index key0 still contains the previous key CNID=123: ----------------------- | key0.CNID=123 | ... | ----------------------- A change in hfs_brec_insert() makes hfs_brec_update_parent() work correctly by preventing it from getting fd->record=-1 value from __hfs_brec_find(). Along the way, I removed duplicate code with unification of the if condition. The resulting code is equivalent to the original code because node is never 0. Also hfs_brec_update_parent() will now return an error after getting a negative fd->record value. However, the return value of hfs_brec_update_parent() is not checked anywhere in the file and I'm leaving it unchanged by this patch. brec.c lacks error checking after some other calls too, but this issue is of less importance than the one being fixed by this patch.
