I discussed this with Fujita Tomonori ... we think it's probably in the
generic block merging code.

Could you run with this debugging code added until the fault triggers so
we can get an exact view of what the layout of the request is and why
we're getting an extra segment on mapping?

Thanks,

James

P.S. I think if you take the BUG() statement out, as long as it's only
one segment over, the machine should stay up long enough for a clean
shutdown.
