I agree, that WARN_ON_ONCE should be changed to BUG_ON. This is a
guarantee that the block layer now provides so it seems correct to have
the DM core bug if that guarantee isn't actually provided.

Given the consequences, it wouldn't hurt to BUG_ON() in dm-crypt too.
It's redundant if the DM core will also BUG_ON() but it serves as a
dm-crypt safety-net/documentation.
