Ok, I see it. Well... interesting. It does not look like a live-dedup
related issue, which makes sense since it shouldn't have been possible
for you to turn on live-dedup. I wonder if there's an end-run around
that though if you overrode it in loader.conf. But there's no way it
would have been turned on by something in sysctl.conf.
Basically the B-tree dump shows three errors. Two B-Tree nodes have a
self-CRC error. One of the nodes is very close to the root which is
why your mount is failing... It can't get to the root directory due to
the bad B-Tree node.
I'm beginning to suspect that it might be the 'ad' (IDE driver)
attachment. Even though its a SATA disk, there might be issues
with the IDE compatibility mode implemented by the BIOS / hardware.
If your BIOS has an 'AHCI' mode you want to enable it, for sure.
What kind of machine is this stuff running on?
It could also be some sort of rare software bug but it's hard to
contemplate that because all of our production machines have been
running HAMMER for ages and have no b-tree errors beyond some historical
mirror_tid propagation warnings (which don't effect operation).
