3.16.7-ckt8 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Dave Chinner <dchinner at redhat.com>

commit 0d612fb570b71ea2e49554a770cff4c489018b2c upstream.

Jan Kara reported that log recovery was finding buffers with invalid
types in them. This should not happen, and indicates a bug in the
logging of buffers. To catch this, add asserts to the buffer
formatting code to ensure that the buffer type is in range when the
transaction is committed.

We don't set a type on buffers being marked stale - they are not
going to get replayed, the format item exists only for recovery to
be able to prevent replay of the buffer, so the type does not
matter. Hence that needs special casing here.
