I did the test on a RHEL 6.6 system. The 4.0 kernel is unsigned, but
there are some additional RHEL modules loaded at boot up time.

I have done the bisection and the following commit in 3.13 is the one
that cause the problem, I think:

f7be2d7f594cbc7a00902b5427332a1ad519a528
xfs: push down inactive transaction mgmt for truncate

I looked at the patch, and it didn't seem quite right, but I don't know
much about the XFS internal to be sure. Maybe you can take a look at that.

Cheers,
Longman
