Looks like a correct diagnosis and cure; thanks.
This can only happen
if ((lastend-1) >> PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT == newfrag->ofs >> PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT)
That's if you have no previous nodes in the fragtree, and the _first_
node it finds is in the range 0xFFFFF000-0xFFFFFFFF (the last possible
page of the file).
Do you have a file with data in that range? This will trigger only if
garbage collection has happened such that a node in that range is the
one with the lowest version number.
Actually I'm not going to make it also depend on (this) but on (lastend)
since it keeps the logic in the above statement consistent, and has much
the same effect.
