    1.1.4 is quite old. Can you try a recent version of jfsutils?

    If that doesn't work, you can try running "fsck.jfs
    --omit_journal_replay", since it is trapping while replaying the
    journal. If all else fails, you should be able to mount it read-only
    (mount -oro) to recover the data.
