Could it be that you saw the error in ext4_validate_block_bitmap()?
The patch which I sent Dann only fixed the problem for inode bitmaps;
I noticed today that we need to fix it for block allocation bitmaps as
well.

    ext4: check for allocation block validity with block group locked
    
    With commit 044e6e3d74a3: "ext4: don't update checksum of new
    initialized bitmaps" the buffer valid bit will get set without
    actually setting up the checksum for the allocation bitmap, since the
    checksum will get calculated once we actually allocate an inode or
    block.
    
    If we are doing this, then we need to (re-)check the verified bit
    after we take the block group lock.  Otherwise, we could race with
    another process reading and verifying the bitmap, which would then
    complain about the checksum being invalid.
