This (corrupted allocation btrees) is a typical indication of missing
Given that before ~2.6.35 LVM/device mapper was not able to pass through
cache flush requests that is your most likely culprit. A repair will
rebuild the freespace btrees, and make sure to keep the write caches
down the whole stack disabled.
