On my test infrastructure (using gce-xfstests, which uses 5gig test
and scratch partitions using PD-SSD as the device, 2CPU's, with 7.5 GB
of memory), it's failing 70% of the time in the 1k and orphan_file_1k

Looking through my notes, that's a known failure:

generic/476	1k
   Run an all-writes fsstress run with multiple threads to shake out
   bugs in the write path.

   50% of the time.  fsck complaining corrupted file system block
   bitmap differences all negative.  Possible cause: races loading
   adjacent block bitmaps in a single 4k page, leading to bitmap
   updates getting lost?

   Eric Whitney reports that it's a punch hole bug, where we are
   leaking a block or a cluster (in bigalloc); with fixed seed he
   can repro reliably at 100%.
