I don't see how given the current situation. The space appears to be
free initially, so zeroing the log contents on repair puts the fs in a
state where the space is not allocated to any particular file. Perhaps
there is some incremental state created by the log that can provide this
information (e.g., space is free, space is preallocated, extent is
converted, eofblocks are trimmed all in a single checkpoint), but that
could be difficult to trace back since iirc the btree had grown as well.

Ok, so the crash is fairly immediate after the wake (also according to
the log output below).

No, the filesystem has been fixed by repair. I'm just saying that
somehow the fs creates a duplicate free space record in one of the free
space trees. That particular condition means it's only a matter of time
before some block allocation operation trips up on that inconsistent
state and shuts down the fs. You happen to hit it immediately due to
that space being involved with speculative preallocation.

The current theory is that this is probably due to XFS workqueues not
being freezable, and therefore can make changes on disk after the dump
image is created. This seems logical to me, but I'd still like to see
some kind of verification of the potential fix if possible. I can repeat
some vm hibernate testing with that in mind. Alternatively, would you
have the ability to test a patch? Have you been able to reproduce this
again since the most recent instance?
