1. LogManager.log() ignores the exception in order for the caller not to
return unless the log is flushed regardless of the exception. This
guarantee must be provided for those JOB_COMMIT and ABORT log records.
2. LogManager.getAndInitNewPage() also ignores it since unless the
logManager can get any available log tail page, the system should not
3. LogManger.terminateLogFlusher() --> LogFlusher.terminate()

In general, all of these ignorance are to provide a certain guarantee that
the system should provide as long as the system is alive.

If you have further questions, we can chat.
