Here's a related patch to try from Jan Blunck.
  [The fix still needs moving into bio_list_merge() not its caller.]

If things keep to schedule, there'll be new userspace activation
code around the end of this week aimed at avoiding
snapshot failures locking up machines, and I'll be back dealing
with the outstanding kernel patches (including this one) by the 
middle of next week.
