I take it back - 0x200 is FSCACHE_COOKIE_ACQUIRED. :-/

I can reproduce a slightly different problem by setting off ~6000 parallel
processes, each reading its own individual directory of files.

I also see reports like this:

   FS-Cache: Duplicate cookie detected
   FS-Cache: O-cookie c=00000000db33ad59 [p=000000004bc53500 fl=218 nc=0 na=0]
   FS-Cache: O-cookie d=          (null) n=          (null)
   FS-Cache: O-cookie o=000000006cf6db4f
   FS-Cache: O-key=[16] '0100010101000000e51fc6000323ae02'
   FS-Cache: N-cookie c=00000000791c49d0 [p=000000004bc53500 fl=2 nc=0 na=1]
   FS-Cache: N-cookie d=00000000e220fe14 n=00000000d4484489
   FS-Cache: N-key=[16] '0100010101000000e51fc6000323ae02'

with no cookie def or netfs data and flags ACQUIRED, RELINQUISHED and
INVALIDATING - which I can insert a wait for.
