Everyone asks this. Yeah, I considered it, I tried to make it work for
a couple weeks but it was far more trouble than it was worth. I'm not
opposed to someone else working on it but I'm not going to spend any
more time on it myself.

Can you post the full log? There was a bug where if it encountered an
error during registration, it wouldn't wait for a uuid read or write
before tearing everything down - that's what your backtrace looks like
to me.

You could try the bcache-3.2-dev branch, too. I have a newer branch
with a ton of bugfixes but I'm waiting until it's seen more testing
before I post it.
