    Did /mnt run out of space while doing that? Or nearly? There's
    a known issue with that area of the XFS code, in conjunction with
    4K stacks at the moment - was that enabled in your .config?

    Looks like something stamped on parts of the xfs_mount structure
    for the filesystem mounted at /mnt, a stack overrun would explain
    that and your subsequent oopsen.
