Clashing of INode of filesystem with devicemapper

We are running docker on a physical machine, but recently the docker machine itself restarts often, and whenever the machine starts booting, we are getting the following error.
Invalid inode for a directory --> the directory poiting to to /container/devicemapper/.

I have 2 questions:

  1. Is the inode problem caused by devicemapper or the filesystem?
  2. Is using devicemapper loopback creates any errors on the filesystem?
