Also I wonder if merely restarting the journal daemon solves it:
systemctl restart systemd-journald
What should happen is it realizes its own logs are corrupt and ignores
them, and starts working on new copies. And journalctl should still
try to read the old ones but skips the corrupt entries.
If that works you could schedule a restart of the journal periodically
as a goofy hack work around until it gets fixed. Clearly Red Hat knows
about this problem.
