The freespace btrees are getting out of sync for some reason.

That is, when we go to allocate an extent, we have to update two
free space btrees. This shutdown:

Indicates the extent being allocated was not found in one of the
two trees.

This corruption could have happened a long time ago in the past, and
it may simply be coincidental that you've tripped over this at
roughly the same time you upgraded the kernel.

Can you run xfs_check on the filesystem to determine if a freespace
tree is corrupted (post the output if it is), then run xfs_repair
to rebuild them?
