Mark, are you sure your XFS is mounted with " -o inode64" option? If not,
then this whole thing maybe just in XFS itself. No need to do anything,
just try to remount XFS with "-o inode64" option and see if the trouble
goes. Sorry if that is what you had had from the very beginning, I seem to
totally have missed this thread.
