I have just tested this with a new kernel. And the issue doesn't arise
with! So it is definitely a kernel bug, most
likely in ext4.

This really needs to be documented and stressed on the pages with
download links. Hashify feature causes total data corruption with when used on ext4 without a journal.

I haven't tried other cases (ext4 with a journal or other file systems)
so I cannot speak for those, but in the mentioned use cases it is
completely repeatable.
