Good find Eric - great work on the reproducer script.

FWIW, can you confirm that a debug kernel assert fails
with a non-zero link count in xfs_bumplink() with your test case?

        xfs_trans_t *tp,
        xfs_inode_t *ip)
        xfs_trans_ichgtime(tp, ip, XFS_ICHGTIME_CHG);

If it does, we should consider this a in-memory corruption case and
return and trigger a shutdown here....
