Seems it's only reproducible on certain hosts, and I haven't been able
to work out an efficient & reliable reproducer. I tried to tuned the
parameters of bash-shared-mapping run, but failed to find a efficient
parameter conbination. Also tried to write a script (attached, not sure
if it's correct) based on the second case above, but still cannot
reproduce it.

By adding debug logs, I got the following stack trace, it's
xfs_bmbt_alloc_block() returns first ENOSPC:

        if (!args.wasdel &&>t_blk_res == 0) {
		error = -ENOSPC;
		goto error0;

Not sure if this helps.
