    Oh, ok. I missed the snd_pcm_action_lock_irq() thing disabling
    interrupts in that call sequence..

    Hmm. If the timer callback is the only other case doing that, then
    that should be ok.

    In fact, now that I look at that lockdep thing, I'm confused. Where
    does the hard irq come in at all for that lock? It seems to come from
    self_group.lock, but I don't see why/how they nest.

    That said, the sound locking is odd, I'm sure you see it. But a
    commentary about how this came about in the changelog would be good.
