  Thanks. I've looked into the disassembly now and we are waiting for the
write of commit record to finish. We have submitted the buffer just before
so it can hardly be some issue like forgotten locked buffer. Really
strange. It looks like some problem in block layer, device driver, or HW
itself... I'm thinking how to debug this further - it would be good if we
had blktrace data just before the moment when the hang happens but given
how hard this is to reproduce the traces would be extremly large...

One idea - can you try whether the problem reproduces with 'nobarrier'
mount option? It could be some problem with flush / fua handling.
