had a quick look again: i believe this one still triggers, and it's
caused by some interaction between input code and workqueue code. I
think it started triggering when Oleg's workqueue annotation patches
went upstream:

6af8bf3: workqueues: add comments to __create_workqueue_key()
8448502: workqueues: do CPU_UP_CANCELED if CPU_UP_PREPARE fails
8de6d30: workqueues: schedule_on_each_cpu() can use schedule_work_on()
ef1ca23: workqueues: queue_work() can use queue_work_on()
a67da70: workqueues: lockdep annotations for flush_work()
3da1c84: workqueues: make get_online_cpus() useable for work->func()
8616a89: workqueues: schedule_on_each_cpu: use flush_work()
db70089: workqueues: implement flush_work()
1a4d9b0: workqueues: insert_work: use "list_head *" instead of "int tail"

plus when the cpu_active_map changes went upstream:

e761b77: cpu hotplug, sched: Introduce cpu_active_map and redo sched domain ma

so it's possibly an old input layer locking problem that only got
exposed via current changes. It's not an input layer bug that got
introduced ~80 days ago, but possibly an input layer problem. Or a CPU
hotplug bug. Or a workqueue bug.
