NAME

       journal_skip_recovery - Start journal and wipe exiting records

SYNOPSIS

       int journal_skip_recovery  (journal_t * journal);

ARGUMENTS

       journal
              journal to startup

DESCRIPTION

       Locate  any  valid recovery information from the journal and set up the
       journal structures in memory  to  ignore  it  (presumably  because  the
       caller  has  evidence  that  it  is out of date). This function does’nt
       appear to be exorted..

       We perform one pass over the journal to allow us to tell the  user  how
       much recovery information is being erased, and to let us initialise the
       journal transaction sequence numbers to the next unused ID.
