Like everyone, the most possible matching traces, locking states, and other
states (irq, atomic, ...), well it depends on the particular case.

The best thing is to provide a way to reproduce it, that's what you did, so
that we can use specific tracers for specific issues.

You mean, what I'm interested in the kernel?
All the kernel :-)
Though I have a preference for the kernel core, and improving tracing
because I'm lazy and I like when there are tools which do most of the things
for me.
