SubjectRe: ext4 corruption on alpha with 4.20.0-09062-gd8372ba8ce28

Finished second round of bisecting, first round did not get me far enough so
I may still have false "goods" in my bisection history.

The command I used for bisecting was Gentoos
emerge --sync.
that sometimes failed from error -6 or -11 from rsync.
Usually the file system corruption did not happen and nothing was in dmesg, just file IO error from rsync.

The result of the bisection is
[88dbcbb3a4847f5e6dfeae952d3105497700c128] blkdev: avoid migration stalls for blkdev pages

Is that result relevant for the problem or should I continue bisecting between 4.20.0 and the so far first bad commit?

>> Two other alphas, PC-164 and Eiger, worked fine with the same kernel version (different kernel configs according to hardware).
>>
>> The details:
>> 4.20 worked fine, with gentoo emerge package update after bootup.
>> Next, 4.20.0-06428-g00c569b567c7 worked fine, with gentoo emerge after bootup.
>> Next, 4.20.0-09062-gd8372ba8ce28 booted up fine but rsync and rm during start of gentoo emerge errored out like above.
>>
>> So the corruption _might_ have happened during bootup of previous kernel but it looks more likely that only the latest kernel with blk-mq introduced the problems. mq-deadline is in use on all the alphas.
>>
>> DS10 has Symbios 53C896 SCSI (sym2 driver), DS10L has QLogic ISP1040, so they are different. Working Eiger and PC164 have sym2 based scsi controllers too.
