I've hit it on two different machines today. The good news is that the
corruption never makes it onto disk. xfs_repair doesn't pick up anything.

You are correct, this is not an on-disk value.

I now have poisoning on and I can see this doing a compile like you suggested. I will ASSERT to see who is doing the decrement after free.
