Commit f5ea1100 cleans up the disk to host conversions for

xfs_node_toosmall() the next node is not correctly found.
If the original node is small enough (<= 3/8 of the node size),
this change may incorrectly cause a node collapse when it should
not. That will cause an assert in xfstest generic/319:

    Assertion failed: first<= last&&  last<  BBTOB(bp->b_length),
    file: /root/newest/xfs/fs/xfs/xfs_trans_buf.c, line: 569

Keep the original node header to get the correct forward node.

Yes, that definitely a bug, but I think that the change doesn't
scope correctly. The original node header doesn't need to be saved
like this - the node header decoded in the loop needs a loop-scope
variable. i.e.:

        /* start with smaller blk num */
        forward = nodehdr.forw<  nodehdr.back;
        for (i = 0; i<  2; forward = !forward, i++) {
+               struct xfs_da3_icnode_hdr thdr;
                if (forward)
                        blkno = nodehdr.forw;
                        blkno = nodehdr.back;
                if (blkno == 0)
                error = xfs_da3_node_read(state->args->trans, state->args->dp,
                                        blkno, -1,&bp, state->args->whichfork);
                if (error)

                node = bp->b_addr;
-               xfs_da3_node_hdr_from_disk(&nodehdr, node);
+               xfs_da3_node_hdr_from_disk(&thdr, node);
                xfs_trans_brelse(state->args->trans, bp);

-               if (count - nodehdr.count>= 0)
+               if (count - thdr.count>= 0)
                        break;  /* fits with at least 25% to spare */



Okay thanks.
