      Bug#39212 Falcon exception on recovery when one of the log files 
      is empty
      Reason is a bug in reiserfs file system.
      The serial log file is initially 512 bytes.  On reiserfs,
      for files opened with O_DIRECT, read() will fail if file size
      is between 1 to 4095 returns error (EINVAL). The bug supposedly 
      occurs because file size is smaller than page size.
      Solved with a workaround: initial size of serial log files is 
      now 8K (we assume largest page size we need to deal with is
