ext4, since the source and destination filesystems were btrfs and
xfs.

The mv was basically frozen though after sometime it resumed. I also noticed that levels of dirty data were really high (=~ 1G) which I presumed may have caused this.

The kernel is
========================================================
Linux Xye 2.6.39-rc6 #78 SMP PREEMPT Mon May 9 14:38:17 IST 2011 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU Q 740 @ 1.73GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
======================================================
Also, I am not using cgroups or systemd at the moment. Also, this is not a Fedora system. (Arch linux).
This happened only once. After which it has been fine, though I have not done such high throughput copying after that.
