I notice you also have a perl process in biowait, this is probably
the one that is really hung. I've seen this occasionally, on various
hardware, but I can't easily reproduce it.
It looks like a I/O request is either never processed, or never biodone()'ed.
But I couldn't spot any race condition in this path ...
