We have a problem with one of our systems which is using XFS but

creating, deleting or writing files. They do not error they are
waiting on the command to complete.

Following details I have for you:
System OS: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Kernel: 3.2.0-37-generic #58-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jan 24 15:28:10 UTC
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Server: Virtual machine in a VMWare setup.
Disc: 300GB direct attached LUN
We have an exact clone of this system for our acceptance
this environment we are unable to reproduce this
Differences between the two days is that our services on
quit busy with a lot of file changes on the xfs disc and on
the system was very quiet on the moment the kernel traces appear
services get stuck.
Any help is appreciated.

There is a couple suspicious items in the syslog entries
xfs mailing list
We will setup the kdump. Can you elloborate on your suspicions?
