I wanted to break some network stack hashing, but while running the test

I also tested this on a current linux net-next kernel, which is 3.14.0-rc6.

If I run the test code below in an directory for a while and after that
try to unlink the files in it (rm -rf testdir), I get above splat. Even
after running xfs_repair I cannot remove the directory. The system is
pretty unusable after that if this is done on a root filesystem.

I quickly extracted this simple test case below. It does not generate
perfect collisions, but they are enough to trigger the above described



Have you tried to run a xfs_repair on the filesystem after the reboot?

Do you fill the filesystem with the test or just part way?
