| 
| kernel-2.6.18-164.15.1.el5

| The GFS2 file system is running on top of a clustered LVM partition.

Hi Mark,

These messages might be due to (1) bugs in fsck.gfs2, (2) the gfs2 kernel
module, or (3) corruption leftover from older versions of gfs2.  I have
a few recommendations:

First, try running my latest and greatest "experimental" fsck.gfs2.
It can be found on my people page at this location:

http://people.redhat.com/rpeterso/Experimental/RHEL5.x/gfs2/fsck.gfs2

If you want to wait a day or two, I'll be posting another version there
then because I've got an even better version I'm testing now.

As for gfs2, we've fixed several bugs in 5.5 so you might want to
look into moving up to 5.5 as well.
