Unless you are using a corrupted file system (e.g., there are EXT4-fs
error messages in dmesg), it's likely a different issue.

There is issue here which doesn't involve a corrupted file system
recently reported:

	https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=217965

However, *please* let's not conflate bug reports unless we know they
are the same thing.  It's better to keep reports separate, as opposed
to having users see multiple bug reports with vaguely the same
symptoms (say, like a headache) and pestering a doctor at a cocktail
party claiming that *of* *course* their issue is the same as the one
they read about in some vlog because the symptoms are the same.

(This is why I hate, hate, HATE bug reports via Launchpad, which tend
very much to be a flaming hott mess....)

Can you give us details about (a) what kind of block device; are you
using dm-crypt, or just a HDD or a SSD?  If an SSD, what kind of SSD?
What CPU architecture is it?  And can you send me the output of
dumpe2fs -h <block device>?  And while the file system is mounted,
please send the contents of /proc/fs/<block-device>/options, e.g.:

% cat /proc/fs/ext4/dm-0/options 
rw
bsddf
nogrpid
block_validity
dioread_nolock
nodiscard
delalloc
nowarn_on_error
journal_checksum
barrier
auto_da_alloc
user_xattr
acl
noquota
resuid=0
resgid=0
errors=remount-ro
commit=5
min_batch_time=0
max_batch_time=15000
stripe=0
data=ordered
inode_readahead_blks=32
init_itable=10
max_dir_size_kb=0

And finally, how full was the file system?  What is the output of "df
<mountpoint>" and "df -i <mountpoint>".

Thanks,
