The trace shows re-entrancy to kmem_cache_free+0x30

I suspect, that you are deadlocking on

spin_lock(&l3->list_lock);

in cache_flusharray.

The task would already be holding the lock from the first pass through
kmem_cache_free.

That being said, I started seeing a similar deadlock on x86, where I am
triggering

BUG_ON(rt_mutex_owner(lock) == current);

in kernel/rtmutex.c:831

Still I have not convinced myself that my patch above is wrong.
