Yes, with the last set of patches I appended to PR 11468 which
fixes the last of the known lfs_avail accounting leaks, I can no
longer reproduce this panic. At least, not yet anyway. I haven't
tried all the different ways to fill the filesystem yet, but its
at least _harder_ to provoke.
Konrad, I just sent you these patches last night. As of right now,
-current still has some serious problems with lfs_avail accounting.
