      test/format failed on tinderbox a couple days ago.

      This console says:

      Although the hp->page is listed in the output, in the core file it is already NULL:

      $1 = (WT_HAZARD *) 0x2788130

      $2 = {page = 0x0, file = 0x67364d "../src/btree/col_srch.c", line = 95}

      Here are the stacks of all interesting threads (4 of 8). Thread 1 is the one that took the assertion. Thread 5 shows the file/line in the hazard pointer.

      So we have a race with page in/out and hazard pointers. Thread 5 is trying to set the hazard pointer in *wt_hazard_set. After setting the page, file and line, we do a WT_FULL_BARRIER. Then it decides that the page is not available, setting hp->page = NULL but without publishing that. At the same time, thread 1, an eviction thread, is doing its last-minute checks on page out. It is in *wt_page_hazard_check and happens to be walking that session's hazard pointers and finds the same hp->page.

      In __wt_hazard_set we say:

                       * We don't bother publishing this update: the worst case is we
                       * prevent some random page from being evicted.

      Perhaps we do need to publish this update. Although it seems like that just narrows a window anyway. We set the page and then could be descheduled before deciding it's busy and clearing the page.
