No, having a single cache device with multiple backing devices is the
most common way to use bcache. I've used a setup similar to yours for
a couple of years without problems (until it broke down recently due
to other issues).

Your current filesystem is probably too damaged to properly repair
right now (some other people here might be able to help with that),
but you probably haven't lost much of what's in there. You can dump
the files out with "btrfs restore", or you can use a patch to allow
you to mount the damaged filesystem read-only
(https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10738583/).

But before you try to restore anything, can you go back in your kernel
logs and check for errors? Either one of your devices is failing, you
might have physical link issues or bad memory. Even with a complex
setup like this you shouldn't be getting random corruption like this.
