I suspect the bugfixes in pre2 will fix some of the more exotic corruption
reports we've seen, but this one (nulls in log files) probably isn't caused
by a random (or semi-random) lower layer corruption. These users are not
seeing random metadata corruption, so I suspect this bug is different (and
reiserfs specific).

In 2.2 code the only data file corruption I know if is caused by a crash....
