Hm. I checked that thread, and as far as I can see, that patch was already
included in the tree I hit the BUG in (3.13-rc1):

    http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=5e9ae2e5da0beb93f8557fc92a8f4fbc05ea448f

There are other changes in that area since 3.13-rc1 though.

Anyway, I am now running with 3.13-rc4 and will report if I see anything.
Given that I do not have any way to reproduce (I only ever saw this once),
this seems the best that can be done for now.

Thanks for following up on this!

 - Kristian.
