FWIW, can't e2fsck be fixed to handle this case?

That whole create and falloc step can be done with one command:

xfs_io -F -c "write 0 4k" -c "falloc -k 4k 4m" $SCRATCH_MNT/test

The output of xfs_io will tell us what failed if it does.

Also, failure handling is as simple as appending:

        || _fail "failure string"

to the command. It handles setting status appropriately, tees the
failure string to $seq.full, and tells the user to go look at
$seq.full for why the test failed. hence that 16 lines of script can
be simply replaced with these 2 lines:

xfs_io -F -c "write 0 4k" -c "falloc -k 4k 4m" $SCRATCH_MNT/test \
        >>$seq.full 2>&1 || _fail "failed to create test file"

I'd still like to see this write attempt to trigger nasty behaviours
like needing to allocate a metadata block for the extent list. I
suggested randholes, but perhaps this would be easier:

for i in `seq 1 2 1023`; do
        dd if=/dev/zero of=$SCRATCH_MNT/test seek=$i bs=4K count=1 conv=notrunc 
\
                >>$seq.full 2>&1 || _fail "failed to write test file"
done

which will write every second block and so only convert every second
block from unwritten to written and hence blow out the size of the
extent list and require extent map block allocation and potentially
trigger ENOSPC that way....

Cheers,

Dave.
