This patch changes xfsdump to use the full 32-bit inode generation number.
A change to part of the dump format (direnthdr_t) was required, so the
dump format version has been bumped to 3. xfsdump also required changes to
its inode-to-generation cache. This map is not persistent though, so no
compatibility or version changes were required there.

I suspect that this does fix the problem.  Since the fix is in the
dump, not just restore, I guess I'll just have to start with a fresh
level 0 and see if the failure ever happens again upon restore.

Thanks,
David
