Subject[PATCH 14/16] GFS2: kernel panic with small gfs2 filesystems - 1 RG
Date
From: Abhijith Das <adas@redhat.com>

In the unlikely setup where there's only one resource group in the gfs2
filesystem, gfs2_rgrpd_get_next() returns a NULL rgd that is not dealt with
properly, causing a kernel NULL ptr dereference. This patch fixes this issue.
