--- Comment #6 from Theodore Tso ( ---
This looks like another case where the allocation bitmap has been corrupted
exposing blocks that belong to the journal inode from getting reallocated.

Can you try two experiments?

1)  See if patching the image file as follows:

debugfs -w tmp.img
debugfs: setb 8258 1024
   <will spew a lot of messages of the form:
          setb: Warning: block NNN already set
    that's fine, ignore them.>
debugfs: quit

Causes your repro to no longer trigger a crash of your LKL binary.
(I guess I could do that, but it's late and I'm too lazy to set up a proper
contained sandbox environment where I'd feel safe downloading a random 16MB
binary executable from an unknown source and running it; so it's much more
convenient if you could run this experiment for me.)

2)  Take the possible-fix patch which I just attached to kernel bugzilla
 and see if it intercepts the failure and declares the file system corrupt such
that the stack trace leading to the crash of your LKL binary no longer happens.
  (This is something I *can't* do, since the sources and instructions for
taking a patched version of the kernel and building a new LKL binary have not
yet been made available.   So if you could also run this experiment and let me
know the results, I would be much obliged.)
