Ho hum, well, no segfault this time, just an out of memory error?

No real way to know where it went from the available data I think.

A few things:

mount failed?  Now's the time to look at dmesg to see why.

Uh, now it worked, with no other steps in between?  That's a little odd.
It found a clean log this time:

> XFS mounting filesystem dm-1
> Ending clean XFS mount for filesystem: dm-1

which is unexpected.

So the memory consumption might be a bug but there's not enough info to go on

worth reporting, but I'm not sure what we can do with it.
Your storage is in pretty bad shape, and xfs_repair can't make something out
of nothing.
