So inode 12 was likely the file used by fsx. OK. Looking at the script
link, fsx is run as:
/usr/local/bin/fsx -N 250000 -S0 foo &
so the seed is always 0. So it is a deterministic test and there must be
some race with writeback or something that is rarely triggered. Drat.

Umm, looking at the filesystems this tests, ext4 with 1 KB blocksize is
likely the config which hits this (the accounting is more complex there) so
it might be interesting to concentrace on this one.
