What happens prior to this message? This is the first indication of
a problem....

And that indicates that the buftarg attached to the buffer has a
NULL xfs_mount pointer, so it's probably related to the above issue.

As it is, none of my machines see this problem, so I'm wondering if
this is related to the way you are using loop devices. Can you
reproduce it on a different type of storage device (like LVm of
physical disk partitions)?

Also, can you turn on CONFIG_XFS_DEBUG and all the memory
leak/poisoning checks and see if that catches anything.
