After the first mount.

The crash always occurred on the current Linus tree kernel...

Again, there is no dmesg output. XFS tells me that it's "Ending recovery
(logdev: internal)" without any errors, when indeed it didn't recover
the log at all. It then mounts the filesystem normally (rw) in this
unclean state. That's when the WARNING I postend above happend.
The fact that when I boot 3.2.0 after the crash (that occurred running
the current Linus tree) log recovery works just fine, point to the new
CRC implementation as the reason for this bug.
