If you get a filesystem into this state, can you run xfs_logprint on it
and send me the output. Just give logprint the block device name and
no other argument, it should dump out the log contents in a fairly raw
form. This problem was caused by the zeroing code missing a block of the log.
I could not replicate the problem here, but it may be with your partition
setup the fix was too simplistic.
