Egads...  Do you mean that req->pages[] contents can be dropped by connection
abort right under fuse_copy_pages()?  Or is it that args[...].value can
end up freed under you?

<goes to look at the ->end() callbacks>

Both, apparently, plus the request initiator might have seen that
request has failed and buggered off, with args[...].value pointing to
what used to be initiator's stack frame.  Is that what you are talking about?

If so, why not mark request as "being handled by fuse_dev_do_{read,write}()"
for the duration, and leave the request_end() on such requests for
fuse_dev_do_{read,write}(), seeing that they will call request_end() for such

Looks like your FR_LOCKED is not far from that already.  Why not stop
dropping/regaining FR_LOCKED in lock_request()/unlock_request() and simply
have your
                end_requests(fc, &to_end2);
in fuse_abort_conn() skip the actual calls of request_end()?
