+ * the AIL during transaction committed processing. If the buffer is unpinned
+ * before the inode item has been committed and inserted, then it is possible
+ * for the buffer to be written and IO completions before the inode is inserted
+ * into the AIL. In that case, we'd be inserting a clean, stale inode into the
+ * AIL which will never get removed. It will, however, get reclaimed which
+ * triggers an assert in xfs_inode_free() complaining about freein an inode
+ * still in the AIL.
+ *
+ * To avoid this, return a lower LSN than the one passed in so that the
+ * transaction committed code will not move the inode forward in the AIL but
+ * will still unpin it properly.
