I also played with the double tag using a reserved tag (below).

While it fixes 'fdisk /dev/sda' issue when trying to 'mount /dev/sda1 /mnt'
what appears to be a call to bio->bi_end_io() from the free'd bio hits in.

Not sure if I should pursue the root cause until the whole double-tag
thingy is confirmed.
