XFS_EFI_CANCELED has not been set in the code base since
xfs_efi_cancel() was removed back in 2006 by commit
065d312e15902976d256ddaf396a7950ec0350a8 ("[XFS] Remove unused
iop_abort log item operation), and even then xfs_efi_cancel() was
never called. I haven't tracked it back further than that (beyond
git history), but handling of efis in cancelled transactions has
been broken for a long time.
Basically, when we get an IOP_UNPIN(lip, 1); call from
xfs_trans_uncommit() (i.e. remove == 1), if we don't free the log
item descriptor we leak it. IOWs, the new behaviour introduced in
this patch is actually the correct behaviour.

Ah, I forgot to convert it.

It was just a straight transformation. I'll kill it.

Ok. Will do.
