I've seen this as well, with three files. In all instances, csum == 
*private + 1. Here are the unique lines from dmesg:

[32700.980806] btrfs csum failed ino 320113 off 55889920 csum 2415136266 
private 2415136265
[32735.751112] btrfs csum failed ino 1731630 off 24776704 csum 
1385284137 private 1385284136
[32738.777624] btrfs csum failed ino 2495707 off 171790336 csum 
1385781806 private 1385781805

All three files are from when I first transitioned to btrfs (or more 
accurately, they are clones of those files I made to hold onto a copy of 
the corrupted version). Since the vast majority of my disk usage comes 
from the transition anyway, I can't be sure this is due to a problem 
only present at that time. I believe I was running 2.6.34 when I copied 
my files over to my new btrfs partition, but I'm going from memory here.

My btrfs partition has never been touched by a 32-bit kernel.
