That's a nasty one. The first couple of pages of the batchbuffer appear
to be overwritten. (Full of 0xc2c2c2c2, i.e. probably pixel data.) That
may be a concurrent write by either the GPU or CPU, or we may have
incorrected mapped a set of pages. That it doesn't recovered suggests
that the corruption occurs frequently, probably on every request/batch.

Is this a new bug? Bisection would be the fastest way to triage it.
