I just tried again with 3.5-rc5, and I was able to reproduce your
failure by using "check 68 68 68 68 68" (it failed after the 2nd time
it ran the fsstress test.  What's interesting is that there have been
no changes in fs/ext4 or fs/jbd2 since 3.5-rc2.  So this may have been
caused by a writeback related change; I'm starting a bisect now.
