Sorry I missed that bug. I just realized that bugzilla.kernel.org has
been sending my email to my old IBM address. I've got some catching up
to do.

I might go with your patch for now, as it is an improvement, but I don't
really like the way that lmLogShutdown is skipped altogether during a
"nointegrity" unmount. If we skip it during a "nointegrity" freeze, we
should also skip lmLogInit on "nointegrity" unfreeze. I'd like to keep
the nointegrity logic in jfs_logmgr.c, but it would be easiest to fix in
the freeze and unfreeze functions. A code cleanup may be better than the
easy fix. I'll have to work on that.

It also looks like freeze/unfreeze doesn't take into account that two or
more mounted file systems can share the same journal. I don't know how
often, if ever, this is done in practice, but it looks like it would be
a problem. Two "nointegrity" mounts may have problem too. That should be
easy enough to verify.

Thanks,
Shaggy
