2.5.60-BK reproducible oops, during LTP run

I have reproduced the BUG in fs/buffer.c:2533 twice now. Test
conditions exactly the same, fsx-linux in one window, LTP in another window.

The machine stays alive for pings and sysrq's, but I cannot ssh into it
nor login at the console. sysrq-s initiates a sync of the root
filesystem on the ATA disk but never finishes. other sysrq's and pings
continues to work after the sysrq-s invocation.

Call trace from BUG, each time I hit it:
EIP in submit_bh

sysrq-t bits (I note truncate and sys_sync as common elements):
* shows that LTP test "ftest08" is running
* fsx-linux stack trace: io_schedule, __wait_on_buffer,
free_hot_cold_page, autoremove_wake_function, autoremovce_wake_function,
journal_invalidatepage, ext2_invalidatepage, do_invalidatepage,
truncate_complete_page, truncate_inode_pages, vmtruncate, inode_setattr,
ext3_setattr, notify_change, do_truncate, do_sys_ftruncate,
sys_ftruncate, syscall_call
* ftest08 stack trace, process 0: sys_wait4, do_fork,
default_wake_function, default_wake_function, sycall_call
* ftest08 trace, proc 1: __down, default_wake_function, __down_failed,
.text.ock.read_write, sys_llseek, sys_sync, syscall_call
* ftest08 trace, proc 2: do_readv_writev, __down, default_wake_function,
__down_failed, .text.lock.read_write, sys_llseek, syscall_call
* ftest08 trace, proc 3: sleep_on, default_wake_function,
log_wait_commit, journal_stop, journal_force_commit, write_inode,
__sync_single_inode, sync_sb_inodes, sync_inodes_sb, sync_inodes,
sys_sync, syscall_call
* ftest08 trace, proc 4: do_writepages, __down, default_wake_function,
__down_failed, .text.lock.read_write, sync_blockdev, sys_llseek,
sys_sync, syscall_call
* ftest08 trace, proc 5: sleep_on, default_wake_function,
log_wait_commit, journal_stop, journal_force_commit, ext3_force_commit,
ext3_sync_file, sys_fsync, syscall_call
