Thanks for the bugfix. I also had a panic having very similar
calltrace below as this one,
when using devicemapper in container scenario and deleting many thin
snapshots by dmsetup
remove_all -f, meanwhile executing lvm command like vgs.

After applied this one, my testing doesn't crash kernel any more for
one week.  Could the block
developers please give more feedback/priority on this one?

My panic trace:
