NAME

       journal_recover - recovers a on-disk journal

SYNOPSIS

       int journal_recover  (journal_t * journal);

ARGUMENTS

       journal
              the journal to recover

DESCRIPTION

       The  primary  function  for recovering the log contents when mounting a
       journaled device.

       Recovery is done in three passes. In the first pass, we  look  for  the
       end  of  the log. In the second, we assemble the list of revoke blocks.
       In the third and final pass, we replay any  un-revoked  blocks  in  the
       log.
