deadlocks with fallocate

Hi,

I currently observe frequent deadlocks in XFS on an I/O intensive workload 
that uses posix_fallocate. This is very annoying, as I have to power down 
the machine (in an unclean state) afterwards.
I observed this with multiple kernel versions including 2.6.32rc1, the 
symptoms are shown in the dmesg extract below.

I am willing to help to debug the problem, although it is probably a race 
condition, as it does not occur all of the time. Is there anything I should 
do to pinpoint the problem?
It always seems to occur when the user space calls fallocate (100% of my log 
entries contained this function call), but otherwise I am not sure what 
triggers it.

Thomas
