FYI, I have been unable, thus far, to reproduce it with 150,000 entries in the
root of a test file system on an 8.x kernel. I'm not set up to test 6.x and
7.x currently, and have other obligations tht will prevent me from setting up
6.x and 7.x test images for a few days.
If people who can reproduce this problem could send kernel stack traces (etc)
as a follow-up to the PR, that would be most helpful. Right now it's sparse
on actual debugging data.
