It's almost certainly an XFS change that triggered it, but it
indicates (once again) that the hibernate code is simply not
quiescing filesystems properly (i.e. by freezing them). The work
that caused this problem is stopped by the filesystem when it
is frozen, and started again when it is thawed...
