(In reply to Michal Suchanek from comment #17)
There is work underway to fix this bug.

Unfortunately the bug is not reliably reproducible inside QA and is very
hard to reproduce outside QA. So finding the bug may take some time.

Well, it *is* reproducible within the openQA tests and therefore what I
consider "inside QA". is the latest
example from yesterday and the logs explicitly show that it is the same error:

2017-06-10 21:45:02 <5> install(3321) [zypp] THROW: Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed:

DonePackage(error: 3, reason: 'Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: error:

If you can provide a test case that reproduces the bug without running a
full QA installation test that would be helpful.

It might be possible to reproduce the same error by just repeatedly trying to
install/uninstall a package using rpm.

Other than this, what is the problem with the "full QA installation test"? Only
other alternative I have in mind right now is running a specific subset of
"xfstests" but I don't know which one would be feasible.

@Michel Normand: Maybe you can try out to run xfstests in an environment
similar to the one that fails here?

Also using such test to point out a particular kernel commit that causes the
bug or makes it more prominent would be helpful.

In case no one did that yet I recommend to check the kernel version differences
between the first failed and the last good and then look into the changelog to
identify submit requests and commits correspondingly.
