so in CPUHP_TEARDOWN_CPU / take_cpu_down() / __cpu_disable() the CPU is
marked as offline and interrupt handling is disabled. Later in
CPUHP_AP_SCHED_STARTING / sched_cpu_dying() all tasks are migrated away.

Did this hit a random task during a CPU-hotplug operation which was not
yet migrated away from the dying CPU? In theory a futex_unlock() of a RT
task could also produce such a backtrace.
