Your patch seems to have resolved the problem: now i'm writing with the smp kernel (i like your trick of using smp kernel for testing purposes) and dmesg report no errors regarding disk/filesystem. Since i have read other posts regarding problem with DMA (that seems caused by some hand-made configuration), i have also tested that in my system it is regularly enabled:
