We have no tools that are capable of correcting this kind of
corruption. Essentially the volume is lost. You can bring up the server
by disabling salvaging (and attaching) of this specific volume by
creating a file /vice/vol/skipsalvage containing:

<nr volumes>

It is then possible to use volutil purge to remove the volume from the
server. The volume isn't actually removed until the server is restarted.
