OK, well I'd be suspecting that either devicemapper or raid5 lost an I/O
completion, causing that page to never be unlocked.

Please try the latest -mm kernel, which has a few devicemapper changes,
although they are unlikely to fix this.

If it's possible to remove either raid5 or devicemapper from the picture,
that would help us find the problem.

Other than that, the chances of getting this fixed are proportional to your
skill in finding us a way of reproducing it. A good start would be to tell
us exactly which commands were used to set up the LVM and the raid array.
That way a raid/LVM ignoramus like me can take a look ;)
