Well I now tested with 2.6.36 for more than a week and I did not see any
of such hangs upto now. The machine seems table with 2.6.36. So I think
its really an regression of 2.6.37.

I am stuck with what to try next. Since trying to track it down to a
specific commit appears too involved for me and its appears also quite
laborious to get any value debug information out of the kernel - cause it
can take days for the bug to appear -, I am inclined to either test with once its available or just give it a go with 2.6.38-rc3 or rc4.
Maybe 2.6.38-rc3/4 would be the best bet, I have seen a report on the
btrfs mailing list of 2.6.38 fixing a BTRFS hang bug that appeared with
2.6.37. I am just not sure whether its related or not.

There is another thread about 2.6.37 related BTRFS hang:

flush-btrfs-1 hangs when building openwrt

I will add this as comment to the bug report as well.
