Thanks a lot for reporting, and going to such effort to find
a reproducible testcase that you could bisect on.

But this leaves me very puzzled.

Is the "lvm test suite" what I find at git.fedorahosted.org/git/lvm2.git
under tests/ ?

I see no mention of madvise or MADV_REMOVE or fallocate or anything
related in that git tree.

If you have something else running at the same time, which happens to use
madvise(,,MADV_REMOVE) on a filesystem which the commit above now enables
it on (I guess ext4 from the =y in your config), then I suppose we should
start searching for improper memory freeing or scribbling in its holepunch
support: something that might be corrupting the dm_region in your oops.

I'll be surprised if that is the case, but it's something that you can
easily check by inserting a WARN_ON(1) in mm/madvise.c madvise_remove():
that should tell us what process is using it.

I'm not an LVM user, so I doubt I'll be able to reproduce your setup.

Any ideas from the DM guys? Has anyone else seen anything like this?

Do all your oopses look like this one?

Thanks,
Hugh
