Thatnks for looking over this, Mark.

The above patch does not directly apply to the 3.0.x branch because
the rework of the log item lock/push logic in the AIL was not
included in the series. Hence I'm not sure that backportingthis
patch is necessary because the problem only arose after we change
the locking/push logic...
