    Will do that.

    # grep xfs /proc/mounts
    /dev/mapper/wdc1 /mnt/backup xfs rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,attr2,delaylog,noquota 0 0
    /dev/mapper/wdc1 /data xfs ro,relatime,attr2,delaylog,noquota 0 0

    The "/dev/mapper/wdc1" is a dm-crypt device on a ~1TB external disk
    (via FireWire). The 2nd line in the output above is a bind-mount from
    somewhere below "/mnt/backup".

    I'm currently trying to reproduce the problem again and see if the
    {dentry,inode}-state output reveals any more information. After that, I'll
    try with noatime.

    BOFH excuse #115:

    your keyboard's space bar is generating spurious keycodes.
