Hm, even though there's kmemcheck in the stacktrace, I think it's
unrelated. Probably it's just a call that returned and the addresses
were left on the stack. You can also see that the warning clearly
comes from blkdev.h, and since kmemcheck does *not* call into any
blkdev stuff, those stacktrace entries must be just left-overs, as is
also indicated by the unreliable mark, so although those are wrong in
certain circumstances, I don't think they are in this case.

The warning comes from here:

static inline int queue_flag_test_and_set(unsigned int flag,
struct request_queue *q)

I'll add Jens Axboe to Cc.

Thanks for the heads-up!
