That's what it looks like, but won't these checks trigger on the use
(and give the same trace), when we need to know where the free is
happening? The problem is manifesting in several places (bogus or
NULL bh->b_end_io in end_bio_bh_io_sync(); bh->b_this_page == NULL--I
think, havn't reproduced that again to confirm--in
block_invalidatepage()). I'm not sure how to figure out where the
free might be happening; it's tricky enough in userspace with Valgrind
available.

I tried logging alloc_buffer_head and free_buffer_head, but it was too
much output (if it's not masking the problem entirely by changing the
timing too much, it would take ages to repro).

I just repro'd it (took several hours this time), on the
BUG_ON(!bh->b_page); assertion. This one happened while doing a
partition copy (/dev/sdb2) rather than /dev/sdb. Trace follows
(though I doubt it offers any new information). Hopefully somebody
has an idea of where to look next...
