This tests creates several directories that have the same small (8)

Sample backtrace this test tries to prevent in future:

* first serious proposal

* reduced number of possible generated hashes to 8 and thus lowered the number 
   generated files to 10_000 which still generate the corruption in all of my
   10 tests. This speeds up the test considerable. Maybe we can add
   quick to the group description now?
* updated changelog

When testing this program with reduced number of generated hashes and
huge amount of test files, xfs_repair needs a considerable amount of
time to check the directory (I aborted it). I guess this is because the
hash tables get flattened to linked lists.

I don't know if there are other runtime explosions in other parts of
the code (maybe in the kernel).  I suggest to add a random perturbation
to the hash function, which unluckily seems to be included into the
superblock then, too.

Please have a look!
