Somewhere in -STABLE between 4.8-RELEASE and a month or so ago I recreated
a filesystem [~50 GB] on a single disk and used these two options [-g (~8
MB) -h ~8, IIRC] and after mounting any writes would cause a panic. Other
options were -U -m 1%, IIRC.

At the time I didn't try to debug and just dropped those two options and
made a new filesystem, then all was well. I think this was about a month
or two ago. Sorry for the extreme vagueness, but I thought it better to
mention it.
