Yep can reproduce with your config.

Its:

static void wait_on_work(struct work_struct *work)
{
...
lock_map_acquire(&work->lockdep_map);
lock_map_release(&work->lockdep_map);

that triggers this. Which would suggest the work-let wasn't properly
initialized. Now on to figuring out where it came from.

Loop doesn't appear to have anything workqueue related in it, which
suggests the block layer.

And indeed, it appears blk_queue_make_request() initializes
q->unplug_work, and by modprobe loop; rmmod loop you never get to run
that, therefore q->unplug_work gets canceled without ever having been
initialized -> bang!

And indeed, the below patch fixes it:

Subject: block: move q->unplug_work initialization
From: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl>

modprobe loop; rmmod loop effectively creates a blk_queue and destroys it
which results in q->unplug_work being canceled without it ever being
initialized.

Therefore, move the initialization of q->unplug_work from
blk_queue_make_request() to blk_alloc_queue*().
