Hi all,

within the last weeks I've managed to strip my host's workload down to a
reproducible example of the interlock, and here it is:

Please have a look at the `README` and `scripts/all.sh` files at least to
understand the very simple setup. Sure it can be reproduced with even simpler
tricks. I talked to Allan Jude (CC) at EuroBSDcon and he thought that any
synchronous write might trigger the issue (and had some ideas on debugging it)
– for me, the buildbot master did a good job of triggering the interlock by
writing lots of stuff to its SQLite database.

It would be great if some ZFS experts could take a look into this, now that we
have a way to reproduce it. Since several people already claimed to have this
problem, it remains a pretty risky issue for production.

(P.S. if you find non-best-practice things in the setup, I'm interested to hear
about it by short e-mail or @AndiDog87, just for the sake of learning)
