Remote attr buffers aren't logged - they are written sycnhronously
during the transaction - so won't get found by this. As for remote
symlink buffers, yeah, that might be a problem. Ultimately, both of
these buffer types are going to grow headers for CRCs, so this
problem will go away. I'm not sure how to address this problem
in the mean time short of putting the buffer content type into all
the buf_log_format headers. Do you have any better ideas?
