Subject: [PATCH?] reiserfs: prevent panic: don't allow %-char in journal dev.
 name

From: Randy Dunlap <rdunlap@...radead.org>

If the reiserfs mount option's journal name contains a '%' character,
it can lead to a WARN_ONCE() in lib/vsprintf.c::format_decode(),
saying: "Please remove unsupported %/ in format string."
That's OK until panic_on_warn is set, at which point it's dead, Jim.

To placate this situation, check the journal name string for a '%'
character and return an error if one is found. Also print a warning
(one that won't panic the kernel) about the invalid journal name (e.g.):

  reiserfs: journal device name is invalid: %/file0

(In this example, the caller app specified the journal device name as
"%/file0".)
