That's not XFS's fault - that's a broken application that does not
safely overwrite files and hence you lose data on crash.

I can't remember seeing that problem before.

Standard delayed allocation IO completion trace. No idea what
could have caused it. Perhaps a memory error?

Can you send the output of xfs_info on that filesystem, and
perhaps run an xfs_repair -n on it to see if there are any
undetected errors on disk?

Also, I note that you are using ext4 on some disks. Does this
problem show up if you don't use ext4 at all? (We have had problems
in the past with one filesystem not leaving bufferheads in the
correct state and the system crashing when a different type of
filesystem got them reallocated).
