Does it happen with mainline (current) kernels? This is ringing some
distant bells, something to do with an atomic_inc being in the wrong
spot in [_]xfs_trans_alloc ... or maybe a wrong call to xfs_trans_alloc
instead of the '_' prefixed version - details are murky now though. I
do remember fixing ... something in here, a few months back, that fix
may not be in Eric's codebase yet.
