Hmm, it is a non fatal error for gjournal, I'm kind of surprised it's a 
fatal one for ZFS..

If the cache flush really failed (eg due to a stuffed disk) then there 
really is a problem, but IMO it is likely this is going to be caught by 
a read or a write operation very soon.

If it is a transient error then panicing seems to be about the worse 
response :)
