ext2fs_block_iterate: Ext2 file too big


I have a serious problem at booting on Scientific Linux 6.1 x86.

So, I booted with systemrescuecd, and got this message at "fsck.ext4 -c /dev/vg_excaliber/lv_root".

Code:
....
Group descriptor 398 checksum is invalid.  FIXED.
Group descriptor 399 checksum is invalid.  FIXED.
Backing up journal inode block information.

Resize inode not valid.  Recreate<y>? yes

ext2fs_block_iterate: Ext2 file too big while sanity checking the bad blocks inode
And the result of "fdisk -l" is here.

Code:
root@sysresccd /root % fdisk -l
