    That's 8 bytes of 0xf498f398 and 0xc1113c60. Doesn't look like much, but
    they're both valid kernel pointers, and the 0xf498f398 one is actually
    into the same page as the corruption, so it's a pointer to the same slab
    type (or at least same size). Which is a good hint in itself: we're
    looking at a list or something.

    And it's at offset 16 in the structure.

    That's almost certainly a "struct bdi_work", and the use-aftr-free thing
    is the "struct rcu_head rcu_head" part of it. That first thing (pointer to
    the same page) is 'next', and the second thing is a pointer to kernel text
    (and I can pretty much guarantee that 0xc1113c60 is 'bdi_work_free').

    So this is either a fs/fs-writeback.c bug, or it's a problem with RCU.
    Both of them are new or hugely changed since 2.6.31.
