One question, how did you actually test it using kvm-xfstests?  The
kvm-xfstests image that I had up on did not have
generic/456.  It was dated from September 2017, so it didn't have that
test.  Since the publically available image didn't have generic/456,
did you create your own image some how?

I just updated the test appliance yesterday, so it does now.  The
version stamp on it is:

e2fsprogs	v1.43.6-85-g7595699d0 (Wed, 6 Sep 2017 22:04:14 -0400)
fio		fio-3.2 (Fri, 3 Nov 2017 15:23:49 -0600)
quota		4d81e8b (Mon, 16 Oct 2017 09:42:44 +0200)
stress-ng	977ae35 (Wed, 6 Sep 2017 23:45:03 -0400)
xfsprogs	v4.14.0-rc2-1-g19ca9b0b (Mon, 27 Nov 2017 10:56:21 -0600)
xfstests-bld	0b27af9 (Tue, 28 Nov 2017 16:28:51 -0500)
xfstests	linux-v3.8-1797-g4f1eaa02 (Tue, 28 Nov 2017 15:49:06 -0500)

Can you try the latest version of the kvm-xfststs test appliance image
that is on, with the latest xfstests-bld git repo to
drive it?

I use the default configuration (so 2 cpu's, 2 gigs of memory).  The
only difference I have from the default config is that I have the
following in my ~/.config/kvm-xfstests:



Where callcc is an LVM setup using an SSD.  (A Samsung 850 PRO, to be
precise).  VDB, VDC, VDD, and VDG are 5 gig logical volumes, VDE and
VDF are 20 gig logical volumes (although you won't need those for this

With this setup, generic/456 reproduces *reliably* for me.  I tested
using a v4.15-rc1 kernel with commit 51e3ae81ec58e95 reverted. and the
command: "kvm-xfstests -c 4k generic/456"
