I was getting loads of bad page state BUGs all over the place. Although I don't
know for definite, I'm pretty sure it was this patch from that fixes

commit 1b5479d3a60b192b9f87f63cf77772dcac2fb131

    md/raid1 - don't assume newly allocated bvecs are initialised.
    upstream commit: 303a0e11d0ee136ad8f53f747f3c377daece763b
    Since commit d3f761104b097738932afcc310fbbbbfb007ef92
    newly allocated bvecs aren't initialised to NULL, so we have
    to be more careful about freeing a bio which only managed
    to get a few pages allocated to it.  Otherwise the resync
    process crashes.
    This patch is appropriate for 2.6.29-stable.
