My root file system is xfs. As soon as I enable event for

A little bit of debugging shows that bp->b_fspriv is NULL many a time
when trace_xfs_trans_read_buf(bp->b_fspriv) is called.

I do not have any idea about xfs filesystem. So, I am not sure, if it
is expected to have bp->b_fspriv = NULL at this location.

This patch fixes the issue, until we have a better fix.
