xfs_fs_log_dummy() currently is void because it had nowhere to
return errors to. It silently throws away errors because of this.
Hence the correct thing to do here is to fix xfs_fs_log_dummy()
to return the errors it currently ignores. i.e. catch the errors
from xfs_trans_reserve() and xfs_trans_commit() calls in
xfs_fs_log_dummy().

Cheers,

Dave.
