FWIW, I'm trying to track down exactly the same warning on a RHEL6.2
kernel being triggered by NFS filehandle lookup. The problem is
being being reproduced reliably by a well known NFS benchmark, but
this gives more a bit more information on where a race condition in
the inode lookup may exist.
That is, the only common element here in these two lookup paths is
that they are the only two calls to xfs_iget() with
XFS_IGET_UNTRUSTED set in the flags. I doubt this is a coincidence.
