journal can not recover from abort state, so we should take following action to
prevent file system from corruption:

1. change to readonly filesystem when local mount. We can not afford further
   write, so change to RO state is reasonable.

2. panic when cluster mount. Because we can not release lock resource in this
   state, other node will hung when it require a lock owned by this node. So
   panic and remaster is a reasonable choise.

ocfs2_abort() will do all the above work.

This is a busy-wait loop, isn't it?  That's going to chew lots of CPU
and in some situations (eg, SMP=n, PREEMPT=n) it will lock up the
kernel because kjournald will never run.

Coding-style issues:

It would be more conventional to add braces for the comment:

		if (status < 0) {
			/* journal can not recover from abort state, there is
			 * no need to keep commit cache. So we should either
			 * change to readonly(local mount) or just panic
			 * (cluster mount). */
			ocfs2_abort(osb->sb, "Detected aborted journal");
		}

And to lay out the comment like this:

			/*
			 * journal can not recover from abort state, there is
			 * no need to keep commit cache. So we should either
			 * change to readonly(local mount) or just panic
			 * (cluster mount).

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for you comments, please see my reply:

This will not be a busy loop, because j_num_trans will be 0 here (when 
cluster mount, system will panic to prevent further corruption of ocfs2 
file system; when local mount, this value will be 0 all the time), so 
this thread will always wait on above wait wait_event_interruptible().
But to make code more clearer, I will add code to set j_num_trans to 0in 
this function.

OK

I will resend v2 patch later.
