Problems like this will occur if you run your filesystem at > 85-90%
full for extented periods....

Most likely is that you have no contiguous free space large enough
to create a new inode chunk.  using xfs_db to dump the freespace
size histogram will tell you if this is the case or not.

Ugh. Sounds like you've been running the filesystem near full for
it's entire life....
