--- Comment #3 from Theodore Tso ( ---
What sort of information can you give about the ext4 file system where this is
happening?  How much free space is there?   Can you run "df" and "dumpe2fs -h"
on the system so we can see which file system features were enabled?   Also,
can you specify the kind of the block device?

Differential debugging would be useful.  For example, can you try is to copy
the file system image to a hardware, and see if you can reproduce the behavior
using the same kernel build workload?   What if you copy to the file system
image to a USB attached SSD, and see if you can reproduce the behavior?   What
you attach the USB attached SSD, and use a freshly formatted ext4 file system? 
 Does it reproduce then?   If the file system is nearly full, what if you
delete a lot of unused space, to provide a lot more free space, and see if it
reproduces then?
