I don't see problem for 4.19. Haven't bisected yet.
Most likely this is around 'reserved cluster accounting'.

I suspect before these changes something always triggered da before unlink and
space usage committed and then truncated at eviction.

Clear_inode is called also when inode evicts from cache while it has nlinks
and stays at disk. I'm not sure how this must interact with reserves.
