It would be more useful if you could start tracing before the first 'fs
mkmount'. If you have no idea when that will happen, you can enable
tracing with minimal impact by just running e.g.:

fstrace clear cm
fstrace setlog cmfx -buffers 1024
fstrace sets cm -active

which will enable tracing, but the tracing data won't go anywhere. So,
you can leave that turned on for a while. Then as soon as the problem
happens, run:

fstrace dump cm > /whatever

which will output the last N entries in the log. Afterwards, you can
turn off tracing completely with

fstrace sets cm -inactive
