Assuming you already have a pre-repair metadump, I'd suggest to
xfs_repair, capture and post the repair output to the list and leave it
at that (for now at least). I think you mentioned previously that the
problem hits more frequently at this point, so I wonder if you could try
to reproduce and get a better idea of what might contribute to the

For example, can you actively reproduce at this point? Perhaps get some
work going on all of the applications you typically have running and run
some hibernation cycles..? While a reformat might spare you from the
issue for a bit, it's going to make it that much harder to get more
information on what's going on.
