I just re-read your e-mail and your device has a logical block size of 4096 bytes, whereas most of the hfsplus code uses a block size of 512... you will need to look into hfsplus_submit_bio(), which is in the same file wrapper.c.

I've looked into the code myself a little and here's what I see.
hfsplus_read_wrapper() calls to hfsplus_submit_bio() twice to fill
sbi->s_vhdr and sbi->s_backup_vhdr. And according to parameters they
are filled with pointers into sbi->s_vhdr_buf and
sbi->s_backup_vhdr_buf respectively. It's done with the following code
at fs/hfsplus/wrapper.c:79:

if (!(rw & WRITE) && data)
*data = (u8 *)buf + offset;
So s_vhdr and s_backup_vhdr shouldn't be freed, s_vhdr_buf and
s_backup_vhdr_buf should be freed instead. And indeed changing in
hfsplus_fill_super()

kfree(sbi->s_vhdr);
kfree(sbi->s_backup_vhdr);

to

kfree(sbi->s_vhdr_buf);
kfree(sbi->s_backup_vhdr_buf);

fixes BUG reports from SLUB.

Now, the problem with "too large" error is trickier. According to this message

>> [   92.549197] hfs: filesystem size too large blksz_shift=14, total_blocks=486494

HFS thinks that my iPod has block size of 16 KiB. But
generic_check_addressable() decides that everything with blocks larger
than PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT (i.e. 4 KiB on my system) cannot be addressable
and thus filesystem cannot be mounted. I guess it wasn't supposed to
be that way. Is hfsplus_read_wrapper() wrong in determining block size
or all iPods where this was tested actually had block size 4 KiB or
less?

> It is going to be difficult to do anything without the actual device and 8GB is too large to be send around. Assuming it is mostly music/media and there isn't too much stuff which is too confident/private, can I ask you to send me say, the first few MB of the disk?

I'll send it in a separate email bypassing lists.
