Yes, I'm seeing this too, and I suspect that the calculation in
vop_write_dirent() is wrong; I inserted a printf() before the bzero()
and found that the second argument, or

  dp->d_reclen - offsetof(struct dirent, d_name) - dp->d_namlen,

can be negative.  Try reverting the users of vop_write_dirent()
to the previous revisions and see if it helps.
