The issue started with:

74cd15cd02708c7188581f279f33a98b2ae8d322 is the first bad commit
commit 74cd15cd02708c7188581f279f33a98b2ae8d322
Author: Zheng Liu <wenqing.lz@taobao.com>

ext4: reclaim extents from extent status tree

Please note that my local rtorrent version was configured with
"--with-posix-fallocate". I'm not sure if distributions also enable this
flag, but it could explain why Ted and Dave weren't able to reproduce
the problem so far.
