How reproducible of the hang?

I also see the -EINTR output, but that seems to be designed for
btrfs/11[45].

btrfs/078 is unrelated to qgroup, and all these three test pass in my
test environment, which is v4.11-rc1 with your patches applied.

I ran these 3 tests in a row with default and space_cache=v2 mount
options, and 5 times for each mount option, no hang at all.

It would help much if more info can be provided, from blocked process
backtrace to test mount option to base commit.

Thanks,
Qu
