Andreas, Bob, please be very very careful with lov_objid. As I already
wrote last week, I get reproducibly and always a hard kernel panic when
I tested and deleted the file and then mounted the MDT again.
You can try it, but DO CREATE A BACKUP of this file, so that you can
copy it back, if something goes wrong.
Sorry, I don't have the time right now to work on the
lob_objid-delete-bug, not even time to write a suitable bug report :(
