[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 07/18] [GFS2] kernel panic mounting volume

From: Bob Peterson <rpeterso redhat com>

This patch fixes Red Hat bugzilla bug 450156.

This started with a not-too-improbable mount failure because the
locking protocol was never set back to its proper "lock_dlm" after the
system was rebooted in the middle of a gfs2_fsck.  That left a
(purposely) invalid locking protocol in the superblock, which caused an
error when the file system was mounted the next time.

When there's an error mounting, vfs calls DQUOT_OFF, which calls
vfs_quota_off which calls gfs2_sync_fs.  Next, gfs2_sync_fs calls
gfs2_log_flush passing s_fs_info.  But due to the error, s_fs_info
had been previously set to NULL, and so we have the kernel oops.

My solution in this patch is to test for the NULL value before passing
it.  I tested this patch and it fixes the problem.
