    Subject[PATCH 1/1] LogFS: Kernel BUG at readwrite.c:1193
    This happens when __logfs_create() tries to write a new inode to the
    disk which is full.

    __logfs_create() associates the transaction pointer with inode. During
    the logfs_write_inode() function call chain this transaction pointer
    is moved from inode to page->private using function move_inode_to_page
    (do_write_inode() -> inode_to_page() -> move_inode_to_page)

    When the write inode fails, the transaction is aborted and iput is
    called on the failed inode. During delete_inode the same transaction
    pointer associated with the page is getting used. Thus causing kernel

    The patch checks for error in write_inode() and restores the
    page->private to NULL.
