Here's a quick patch to try and do some explicit shared extent writeback
checking. What's interesting so far is that this seems to allow
reproducing the original shared/010 problem reliably with generic/127.
That goes away with the previously posted patch to call
xfs_trim_extent(), but if I reset my hardcoded shared/010 seed and start
running that test in a loop I can eventually reproduce another instance
of this assert failure that isn't detected by the checksum checks (i.e.,
shared/010 would pass if not for this particular assert firing).

It's not immediately clear to me if this is another problem or a flaw in
this patch. I'll have to dig into it further, so I'm just throwing this
over the wall for the time being in case anybody has thoughts or finds
it useful..
