I had another smaller hangup, and unfortunately I wasn't paying
attention. I just noticed that between a zillion runs of the "benchmark"
taking 1 minute (for the part before the sync) I just had one that took
2m30s for the same part. The system was absolutely idle except that test
so I can't really see an explanation other than being another smaller
The good news is that it definitely came out of the hangup by itself:
this time I didn't press Ctrl-C. So even if it was an xfs bug it doesn't
The dmesg this time showed nothing; probably because the hangup this
time was shorter than 120 seconds so the watchdog didn't notice anything.
