Did you recreate the pool, or are you just using the existing pool but with
a different IO path?  If it's the latter then there could still be something
wrong with the metadata, introduced while bcache was in the stack.

Would it be possible to send me a copy of the metadata device please so
I can double check the space maps (I presume you've run thin_check on it)?

[Assuming you're using the existing pool] Another useful experiment would be to 
thump_dump and then thin_restore the metadata, which will create totally fresh
metadata and see if you can still reproduce the issue.

Thanks,

- Joe
