It is OT, so I've updated the RH bugzilla with my comments.

The one thing I would add is that we haven't been able to trigger this
via xfstests, so the workload needed trigger this must be fairly
unique/unusual.  (Which is why I suggested in the bugzilla update that
if someone sees this pattern of corruption, it would be very useful to
get the pathname of the inode in question, in the hopes that this
provides some hint as to what happened.)
