My independent bisection agrees that e8fd3c9a5415 ("ext4: protect
journal inode's blocks using block_validity") is the root cause. I was
able to revert it along with 18b3c1c2827c ("ext4: unsigned int compared
against zero") on 4.19 and then the issue went away.

I tested the same revert on mainline v5.2-rc1 and it fixed the issue
there as well (git revert fbbbbd2f28ae 345c0dbf3a30).

The problem reproduces in our environment 100% of the time, but creating
a reproducer is troublesome; it happens while running LTP syscalls, and
requires some combination of syscall tests to happen. So far, we've been
able to reduce it to the following ltp runfile:
https://gist.github.com/danrue/61c663e1dc50dc7c13a232f0a062bdc6

LTP is run using '/opt/ltp/runltp -d /scratch -f syscalls', where the
syscalls file has been replaced with the version in the gist, and
/scratch is an ext4 SATA drive. /scratch is created using 'mkfs -t ext4
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-TOSHIBA_MG03ACA100_37O9KGKWF' and mounted to
/scratch.

I'll update the gist as we reduce it further.

Dan
