I'd like to consider BUG_ON inside ext4_free_io_end as a sanity check to
force all callers to perform all necessary error checks in known context.

No, each unwritten extent will be added to i_complete_io_list regardless
to it's origin (buffered or DIO), and will be completed via
ext4_end_io_nolock(). So assertion is correct.
