[Cluster-devel] [GFS2] Small fixes to logging code



Hi,

This reverts part of an earlier patch which tried to reclaim
gfs2_bufdata structures too early and resulted in a "use after free"
case (this bit from me). Also a change to not write out log headers
unless we really need to (in the case of flushing nothing we don't need
a header) from Bob.

Steve.
