Hello Wakko,

Thank you for having narrowed down this further. I think that you encountered
a regression either in the block layer core or in the SCSI core. Unfortunately
the number of changes between kernel versions v4.9 and v4.10 in these two
subsystems is huge. I see two possible ways forward:
- Either that you perform a bisect to identify the patch that introduced this
regression. However, I'm not sure whether you are familiar with the bisect
- Or that you identify the command that triggers this crash such that others
can reproduce this issue without needing access to your setup.

How about reproducing this crash with the below patch applied on top of
kernel v4.15.x? The additional output sent by this patch to the system log
should allow us to reproduce this issue by submitting the same SCSI command
with sg_raw.
