This has a proposed patch. I don't know what the status of it is, though. Jens?

This one is interesting. And I think I perhaps see where it's coming from.

bd_start_claiming() (through bd_prepare_to_claim()) has two separate
success cases: either there was no holder (bd_claiming is NULL) or the
new holder was already claiming it (bd_claiming == holder).

Note in particular the case of the holder _already_ holding it. What happens is:

- bd_start_claiming() succeeds because we had _already_ claimed it
with the same holder

- then some error happens, and we call bd_abort_claiming(), which
does whole->bd_claiming = NULL;

- the original holder thinks it still holds the bd, but it has been released!

- a new claimer comes in, and succeeds because bd_claiming is now NULL.

- we now have two "owners" of the bd, but bd_claiming only points to
the second one.

I think bd_start_claiming() needs to do some kind of refcount for the
nested holder case, and bd_abort_claiming() needs to decrement the
refcount and only clear the bd_claiming field when it goes down to
zero.

I dunno. Maybe there's something else going on, but it does look
suspicious, and the above would explain the BUG_ON().

Tejun, Jens?

Should hopefully be fixed by commit e7b96f28c58c ("agp/intel: Use the
correct mask to detect i830 aperture size.")

This one is reportedly fixed by commit 83ba7b071f30 ("writeback:
simplify the write back thread queue")
