Interesting.  So this might be a case of the kernel not coping well
with previous filesystem corruption.

Feel free to take your time; there's no hurry.  Anyway, it's probably
best to get in touch with the XFS maintainers first in case they have
ideas for tracking it down more easily.

Please send a summary of the symptoms so far to xfs@oss.sgi.com,
cc-ing either me or this bug log so we can track it.  Be sure to

 - what steps you perform to reproduce this, what happens, and how
   that differs from what you expected (should be easy in this
 - which kernel versions you have tried and results from each
 - "dmesg" output from booting up as an attachment, if you happen to
   have it
 - what kind of further debugging you would be able and not able to do
 - a link to this bug log, in case someone wants to read the full

If we are lucky, someone on that list might suggest commands to help
diagnose it, which should make it easier for others to artificially
reproduce, see if 3.x.y is affected, and make sure it is fixed in
3.x.y and 2.6.32.y.

Thanks and hope that helps.
