This is an ext4 bug.  It's been on my radar screen to investigate one
of these days, but I've just never gotten around to it.  I'm guessing
the bug is the error handling case when an inline directory is getting
converted directory where its contents are stored in data blocks, and
the block allocation fails due to the ENOSPC.
