So, the following work item never finished. We can tell that pid 549
started execution from the last line.

<idle>-0 [017] 1497.601733: workqueue_queue_work: work struct=ffff880809f3fe70 function=blk_throtl_work workqueue=ffff88102c8ba700 req_cpu=17 cpu=17
<idle>-0 [017] 1497.601736: workqueue_activate_work: work struct ffff880809f3fe70
<...>-549 [017] 1497.601754: workqueue_execute_start: work struct ffff880809f3fe70: function blk_throtl_work
And the stack trace of pid 549 is...

The '?'s are because frame pointer is disabled and means that the
stack trace is a guesswork. Can you please turn on
CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER just to be sure? But at any rate, it looks like
blk_throtl_work() got stuck trying to allocate a request. I don't
think workqueue is causing any problem here. It seems like a resource
deadlock on request. Vivek, any ideas?

Thanks.
