Is CONFIG_PREEMPT[_VOLUNTARY] set? The soft lockup detection works by
checking whether a high pri RT task is scheduled periodically and busy
looping in kernel code with preemption disabled or CONFIG_PREEMPT
disabled would trigger it. The backtrace doesn't mean the CPU is
stuck there not progressing. It just shows where the CPU is at the
moment of triggering and the softlockup triggering itself indicates
that IRQ and bottom halves are running fine.

I think more likely failure mode is something is looping in block path
expecting someone else to do something but as it is busy looping and
preemption isn't enabled the someone else can't proceed. We had a
similar problem in md lately.

If this is the case, a good way to debug would be triggering sysrq-l
multiple times while the machine is hung and see where the CPU is busy
looping.

Thanks.
