I was only talking about the patches and kABI earlier.  I did not
realize that this was just the problem of coding in the ocfs module.
Because this is not enabled in the kernel upstream, they (upstream
developers) would not be interested in fixing the code.  This has
happened with the NTFS module -- it is broken in the 5.3 kernel and
they officially "declared" no patches for that (although a dev
provided a possible fix personally).

So, you probably do not have much choice. Either try fixing the issue
yourself or just disable it for now.
