That implies a flush to disk failed to write everything, but no error was
reported back to the flush. Not particularly conclusive what caused
your problem.

That being said, it's not a fatal error - it simply means that
the bmap will return a bogus block number reported for the delalloc
extent that still exists.

This implies an in-memory error, not an on-disk error...

Can you find the file it is failing on and run 'xfs_bmap -vvp
<file>' to just extract the extent map outside the context of
xfs_fsr?

Cheers,

Dave.
