Thank you. But, hmm. I have no idea about scenario.

struct dm_rq_target_io is a container of clone request
and clone->end_io_data points to its container.

struct dm_rq_target_io {
struct mapped_device *md;
struct dm_target *ti;
struct request *orig, clone;
int error;
union map_info info;

If clone can be dereferenced, clone->end_io_data should be, too.
