Subject: [BUG] ext4: i_size, EOFBLOCKS_FS corruption with xfstests 269


I got a issue which makes i_size and EOFBLOCKS_FL corrupted
on ext4 with xfstests 269.
In my environment (linux-3.5-rc7), this can be reproduced
once of 10 times trial.

Kernel: 3.5-rc7
Arch: x86_64

Step and log are as bellow, after xfstests 269, e2fsck outputs
i_size and EOFBLOCKS_FL corruption.
Is this an already known issue?

# ./check 269
