It's the s390 only zfcp device driver.

FWIW, yet another use-after-free crash, this time however in multipath_end_io:

}
It crashes when trying to derefence pgpath, which was freed. Since we have
SLUB debugging turned on the freed object tells us that it was allocated
via a call to multipath_ctr() and freed via a call to free_priority_group().

FWIW, this reproduction was done with barriers off.

Btw, since I cc'ed you rather late I'm not sure if you are aware of the
test scenario: it's I/O stress with multipathing were paths come and go
all the time. It usually takes quite a few hours before the crashes are
observed.
