I've updated the log message to have some more info:

Fix from chuq:
don't update UVM's notion of the file size before the VOP_FSYNC() when
we're partially truncating a file with softdeps enabled.  doing so could
free pages without updating the dependency info, which would result in
"panic: softdep_write_inodeblock: direct pointer #1 mismatch 0 != N".
