OK, 32GB RAM, no obvious shortage, no dirty or writeback data. 2TB SATA drives, 32AGs, only unusual setting is 64k directory block size. Yup, there's your problem:

I can confirm I also saw this from times to times, in the very same context (ceph OSD, xfs volume with 64k directory blocks)

I never took the time to fully report the problem because it was very sporadic, and I suspected a specific option in my hand-made kernels, in which the problem seems to occurs more often. With the 'standard' debian 3.10.2 (from testing) I never saw the problem (56 days uptime)

cf http://tracker.ceph.com/issues/6301

the report isn't complete here ... sometimes I just have the deadlock, but without oops.
can try to dig deeper inmy old logs to be sure it's really the same
