Thanks for the answer Dave.

Yes I would definitely say it's a ToI bug that perhaps has been dormant so far. Unfortunately the ToI developer is very busy at the moment, so I will have to debug and fix it myself.
This problem did not occur with 3.7 and the ToI code did not change.

Do you have any idea where I can start looking for the XFS change in 3.8 that triggered this behaviour in ToI? Or maybe it was a VFS change?

PS: the email definitely bounced back, most likely because imageshack is blocked on the sgi server:

The error that the other server returned was:

The list doesn't bounce URLs. Please make then clicky in future.

As it is, your kernel has oopsed in submit_bio() when writing a log
buffer writing a dummy log record.

The xfs_log_worker is trying to cover the log, and it seems like the
IO subsystem below it is doing something wrong. Perhaps Tux-on-Ice
is killing the IO subsystem without having first stopped all the
async filesystem processing first?

Looks like a Tux-on-ICE problem to me...
