Hi Stan, can you need to turn off line wrapping for stuff you paste
in? It's all but unreadable when it line wraps like this?
Next, you need to turn /proc/sys/fs/xfs/error_level up to 11 so that
it dumps a stack trace on corruption events. I don't have a (I can't
remember what kernel version you are running) tree in front of me to
convert that line number to something meaningful, so it's not a
Was there anything in the logs before the shutdown? i.e. can you
paste the dmesg output from the start of the test (i.e. the mount of
the fs) to the end?
As it is, all the traces looke like this:

Which implies that the shutdown didn't unlock the inode correctly.
But without knowing what the call stack at the time of the shutdown
was, I can't really tell...
