Hmm. I'm not sure about the nicest way to recover here. txQuiesce() has
been called. This will leave the filesystem effectively frozen, but not
marked as frozen. Maybe better to call jfs_error() and maybe txResume()
in an attempt to unblock any blocked threads.

same here, except we know that lmLogShutdown() has already succeeded.
Maybe we're better off ignoring this return code, since the freezing
succeeded. Failing to mark the filesystem clean is hardly damaging. It
just means that fsck will work harder next time, which is probably a
good idea. This is an unlikely error if everything else has succeeded.

I think I like calling jfs_error() here and letting the system panic,
the filesystem to be marked as read-only (default), or whatever action
is desired.

same here

I'm going to tweak your patch a bit and see what kind of improvement I
can make.

Thanks,
