  Thanks for review Dave. So something like attached patch?

Subject: [PATCH v2] xfs: Fix oops on IO error during xlog_recover_process_iunlinks()

When an IO error happens during inode deletion run from
xlog_recover_process_iunlinks() filesystem gets shutdown. Thus any subsequent
attempt to read buffers fails. Code in xlog_recover_process_iunlinks() does not
count with the fact that read of a buffer which was read a while ago can
really fail which results in the oops on
  agi = XFS_BUF_TO_AGI(agibp);

Fix the problem by cleaning up the buffer handling in
xlog_recover_process_iunlinks(). We release buffer lock but keep buffer
reference to AG buffer. That is enough for buffer to not go away under us
and we don't have to call xfs_read_agi() all the time.
