I had a crash of a qemu guest in tracked_request_begin.
The testcase was a guest with ramdisk/kernel that reboots in a 
loop. (about 10 times per second) with a single null-co disk 
attached. No idea how to reproduce this, seems to be a lucky hit.

(gdb) bt

looking at the code we are at

QLIST_INSERT_HEAD(&bs->tracked_requests, req, list);
which translates to

if (((req)->list.le_next = (&bs->tracked_requests)->lh_first) != NULL) 
    (&bs->tracked_requests)->lh_first->list.le_prev = &(req)->list.le_next;
(&bs->tracked_requests)->lh_first = (req);                       
(req)->list.le_prev = &(&bs->tracked_requests)->lh_first;

gdb says, that (&bs->tracked_requests)->lh_first) is zero in the corefile
(gdb) print /x bs->tracked_requests
$6 = {lh_first = 0x0}

Now looking at the code I am asking myself if this can happen in parallel
to another code that touches tracked_requests, because gcc seems to read
&bs->tracked_requests)->lh_first twice (first to check the value, then
to use it as pointer)
