It's a bit of along shot, but could you try mounting the XFS file
system with
-o ikeep

and see if it makes a difference.

When you have "ikeep", I can find the code that increments the
generation number between different uses of the one inode number.

When you have "noikeep" (which I think is the default) it doesn't keep
the inode of disk when deleted and so (presumably) needs generate a
random generation number for each use. But I cannot find the code
that does that. I'm probably not looking in the right place, but I
don't think it can hurt to try "-o ikeep".
