This warning is from concurrent index patch. I will fix it and post
the patch on that thread.

Here what is happening is that when it tries to clear the bitmapbit,
it expects it to be set.  Now, I think the reason for why it didn't
find the bit as set could be that after the new overflow page is added
and the bit corresponding to it is set, you might have crashed the
system and the replay would not have set the bit.  Then while freeing
the overflow page it can hit the Assert as mentioned by you.  I think
the problem here could be that I am using REGBUF_STANDARD to log the
bitmap page updates which seems to be causing the issue.  As bitmap
page doesn't follow the standard page layout, it would have omitted
the actual contents while taking full page image and then during
replay, it would not have set the bit, because page doesn't need REDO.
I think here the fix is to use REGBUF_NO_IMAGE as we use for vm

If you can send me the detailed steps for how you have produced the
problem, then I can verify after fixing whether you are seeing the
same problem or something else.
