I don't know, I was not able to reproduce the bug on 3.0 either.
Either the bug was fixed between 3.0-rc7 and 3.0, or it is very hard to 

I tried with the attached test program (which creates a mess^H some files in 
the current directory, performs I/O and dumps core
from 2 processes in parallel.).

All I got was 2 hung kernel threads for 2m+ in xfs_evict_inode + xfs_file_sync, 
trigerring the hung_check timer and NMI backtraces,
and the process was unkillable (by kill -9) for a while. It eventually 
recovered though, and its not surprising that this happened
: the test program generated 100Mb/s - 500Mb/s I/O.

I'll have to see if I can reproduce the BUG with 3.0-rc7. Although I don't see 
any XFS changes between 3.0-rc7 and 3.0
there were some RCU fixes to core VFS code.

Best regards,
