Default dm corruption? (Was: can't recover ext4 on lvm from ext4_mb_generate_buddy:739: group 1687, 32254 clusters in bitmap, 32258 in gd)

Has anything else happened with this?

I'm seeing similar problems with dm_crypt (with kernel 3.2.7),
only I also see "JBD2: Spotted dirty metadata buffer",
which I've found some (unanswered) reference to here:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?format=multiple&id=822071

I can reproduce the problem 100% of the time, but only under the
early-boot conditions I see it in. I've failed at any attempt so far to
reproduce it once the system is all the way up.

My steps to reproduce are:

create 3G sparse file (making this zero-filled doesn't change anything)
loopback mount file
bring up dm-crypt on loopback
build ext4 on dm-crypt
copy about 100M worth of files into the filesystem

The amount of errors reported varies, but most recently:

[ 82.659992] EXT4-fs error (device dm-1): ext4_mb_generate_buddy:739: group 14, 32258 clusters in bitmap, 32262 in gd
[ 84.338432] EXT4-fs error (device dm-1): ext4_mb_generate_buddy:739: group 15, 32258 clusters in bitmap, 32262 in gd
[ 86.334815] EXT4-fs error (device dm-1): ext4_mb_generate_buddy:739: group 16, 32258 clusters in bitmap, 32262 in gd
[ 87.660183] JBD2: Spotted dirty metadata buffer (dev = dm-1, blocknr = 0). There's a risk of filesystem corruption in case of system crash.
[ 87.814646] JBD2: Spotted dirty metadata buffer (dev = dm-1, blocknr = 0). There's a risk of filesystem corruption in case of system crash.
[ 88.221369] EXT4-fs error (device dm-1): ext4_mb_generate_buddy:739: group 17, 32258 clusters in bitmap, 32262 in gd
[ 89.930729] EXT4-fs error (device dm-1): ext4_mb_generate_buddy:739: group 18, 32258 clusters in bitmap, 32262 in gd
[ 91.709804] EXT4-fs error (device dm-1): ext4_mb_generate_buddy:739: group 19, 32258 clusters in bitmap, 32262 in gd
[ 93.805440] EXT4-fs error (device dm-1): ext4_mb_generate_buddy:739: group 20, 32258 clusters in bitmap, 32262 in gd

I'm at a loss for how to track this down.

Any ideas?
