I guess, you're not on this specific openSUSE git version of 22.214.171.124 (e.g.
the preparation for SP1 of SLE11), which, as usual, carries a lot of stuff
from later kernels. The offending patch was included in linux-2.6.33
between -rc4 and -rc5:
xfs: Avoid inodes in reclaim when flushing from inode cache
xfs: Remove inode iolock held check during allocation
