That means that the lockdep warning hit in the same net_rx cycle
before the leak was detected by the softirq code.

Can you please add the debug patch below and try the following:

Enable CONFIG_FUNCTION_TRACER & CONFIG_FUNCTION_GRAPH_TRACER

# cd $DEBUGFSMOUNTPOINT/tracing
# echo sk_clone >set_ftrace_filter
# echo function >current_tracer
# echo 1 >options/func_stack_trace

Now wait until it reproduces (which stops the trace) and read out

# cat trace >/tmp/trace.txt

Please provide the trace file along with the lockdep splat. That
should tell us which callchain is responsible for the spinlock
leakage.

Thanks,

tglx
