Originally I had BUG() here, and Frank (I think it was Frank, sorry it
was a while ago) told me it should be WARN_ON(). In v12 Stephen told
me it should be BUG(), and nobody objected so I went back to making it
a BUG() (note I also mentioned this change on the cover letter of v13
and still no one objected).

You can see the most recent discussion with Stephen here:
