xfs_ialloc_next_ag() currently resets m_agirotor when it is equal to m_maxagi:

         if (++mp->m_agirotor == mp->m_maxagi)
                 mp->m_agirotor = 0;

But, if for some reason mp->m_maxagi changes to a lower value than current
m_agirotor, this condition will never be true, causing m_agirotor to exceed the
maximum allowed value (m_maxagi).

This implies mainly during lookups for xfs_perag structs in its radix tree,
since the agno value used for the lookup is based on m_agirotor. An out-of-range
m_agirotor may cause a lookup failure which in case will return NULL.

As an example, the value of m_maxagi is decreased during inode64->inode32
remount process, case where I've found this problem.
