I just wanna add that i've seen these kinds of hangs too when removing
directories with millions of files. My "solution" was to recreate the
filesystem - which was several years old at that time. Looking forward
to the fix. Thanks for the great work going on here - both for the
in-depth investigation and the fix.

cheers,
Michael
